High School Partnership Program
It may sound obvious, but sometimes the best place to help a child realize their potential is at school. This program is designed for current High School students who are ages 15-18 who want to impact the life of an elementary school Little in their community. A High School student may be enrolled in a class that is Pathway specific for children, AP or Duel Credit class or have time available before or after school to become a Big. This is both providing volunteer and service hour opportunities while impacting a Little from your own school system.
Although it takes place at schools or a designated alternative site, this mentoring program isn’t limited to the classroom. Of course, some Littles do talk with their Bigs about class, or do homework, or read together, but it’s perfectly fine to shoot hoops in the gym or play on the playground. At the end of the day, it's really all about starting a friendship, providing guidance and inspiring them to reach their potential.
