Site-Based Programs


School Bigs

School Bigs volunteers mentor middle and elementary school students. Bigs and Littles meet one hour each week during the school day on school grounds only. School matches enjoy card games, reading, shooting baskets, journal writing or finding a quiet corner to share a giggle. These simple activities and the friendship that develops make coming to school fun and rewarding for both the student and volunteer.  Some of the biggest supporters of our School Bigs program are  teachers. They see students come back from their time with their Big filled with confidence, smiling big, ready to learn and eager to succeed.

Volunteer Commitment: Minimum of 12 consecutive months, 1 hour weekly during the school year with some summer contact to complete the year commitment.
Requirements: (1) interview (2) training (3) car strongly recommended. Program offered in Monroe County Community School Corporation, Richland-Bean Blossom Schools, Spencer Owen Community Schools and Cloverdale Community School Corporation.

At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we have tremendous confidence in our ability to impact children and put them on the right path. But it means even more when an outside study comes to the same conclusion.



Club Bigs

Club Bigs volunteers mentor children at one of three Boys & Girls Club sites in Monroe County.  Bigs and Littles enjoy all the activities that the Club has to offer and may walk or bus to the library, Wonderlab or a local shop for a soda or hot chocolate.
