Let's start something together! Parents and guardians are not just part of the process, they’re part of the success.
Families as Partners
When it comes to the future of our children and the well-being of our communities, we’re all in this together. So it should come as no surprise that we need the parents and guardians of Littles to be involved every step of the way, starting with the initial match.
Not only will you provide information about your child’s strengths and needs, but you’ll also approve the selection of the Big Brother, Big Sister or Big Couple. Once the match is made, you remain closely involved in many ways, including:
Approving activities and outings for your child and their Big
Asking your child questions about those outings, and sharing what you learn with the agency staff
Reporting your child’s progress and milestones to the agency on a regular basis (Big Brothers Big Sisters will contact you, but we welcome your feedback any time
Who can be a Little?
LIttles in our program are children who live in the Johnson County area, between the ages of 7-14, and from primarily single-parent or non-traditional homes. In addition it is important that both the parent and child are interested in participating in the program. Just as we expect volunteers to set aside time each week to see their LIttle, we hope that our Littles will make sure to be respectful of their volunteer and being available at the appointed time.
