Since 1904, Big Brothers Big Sisters has been changing children's lives by matching them with caring adults to guide them on a path to success.

our process

how does big brothers big sisters help Tadarrius?

Child safety is Big Brothers Big Sisters' highest priority. To achieve the highest standards possible, we work constantly to review and strengthen our background check systems as new best practices in the industry emerge. We also make sure our Bigs and our staff have the training and resources they need to help Littles on their path to success.

Screening & Training

Child safety is Big Brothers Big Sisters’ highest priority.

We also make sure our Bigs and our staff have the training and resources they need to help Littles on their path to success.

Relationship Management

Children like Tadarrius get the most out of their one-to-one relationship with their Big when the Big, the parent or guardian, and the child talk openly with their Match Support Specialist. Working as part of the team helping the child succeed, the Match Support Specialist can help identify problems, brainstorm solutions, and connect the family with essential services.

matching

When Big Brothers Big Sisters works to match a Little with a Big, we take into account the needs, personality, interests, and goals of both the child and the adult volunteer. We introduce the Little and his or her family to the Big slowly and make sure everyone is fully committed to the match before it is made official. Little Sister Anessa is outgoing and likes to try new activities, so she needed a Big who was creative and had a variety of interests.

activities

When Tadarrius's Big Brother saw the email from BBBS saying that there were spots open in a free acting class, she jumped at the chance to take Tadarrius. BBBS affiliates across the country provide activities for Bigs and Littles and also alert Bigs to opportunities in the community. This enables Bigs to get to know other Bigs, who might be experiencing similar things and who might have great suggestions for more new activities..
