Families as Partners

Parents and guardians are not just part of the process, they’re part of the success.

When it comes to the future of our youth and the well-being of our communities, we’re all in this together. You know what’s best for your child. So, we need your help from the start. You will provide information about your child’s strengths and needs, and ultimately approve the Big Brother or Big Sister match.  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)
  • Participating in training on child safety offered by Big Brothers Big Sisters staff and communicating with your child about the training he or she receives.
