In order to grow the Biggs & Littles Mentorship, we need funding. Donations towards the Biggs & Littles Program will be used for:
- Cost of background checks for mentors and volunteers
- Advertising/recruiting mentors
- Group activities and outings
- Fuel to pick up children for events as well as transporting children and mentors to events
- Resources such as sports equipment, fishing gear, food, etc.
Once a month we take a group of children along with a group of mentors and provide and activity for them the connect with. These activities range from a picnic at the park to taking the group to Daze in a Maze. The excitement on the children's faces when they play dress up with a caring adult at Leonardo's, or sing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" at their first baseball game is beyond words. We need caring adults who will commit to one event each month to connect with these kids and show them that people care about them, and they can do anything they set their minds to.
Depending on our numbers, each mentor typically has 1-3 children that they will mentor at an event and we try to keep kids with the same mentor if possible so they can build a lasting relationship. If a mentor decides they would like to connect with their Little more than once a week, we have partnered with Coach-a-Kid where you can visit your Little once a week at their school and help them with homework and play a game or two.
