Our Community-Based program involves Bigs and Littles participating in no-cost or low-cost activities in the community. The Big picks their Little up and takes them to participate in an activity together for 2 hours at a time, twice times a month. Some Bigs meet their Littles on the weekends. Others get together with their Littles on weekday evenings. Each match is unique and develops a schedule that works for them.

Role models make an impact
Studies show that children who have role models are more likely to improve in school and in their relationships with family and friends, and less likely to skip school or use illegal drugs or alcohol. Students who are successful in school are less likely to drop out, abuse drugs, or commit crimes.
