SAFETY FIRST

Your child’s safety is our first priority. We take extensive care to screen every volunteer with background checks, in-person interviews, and personal training. Once Matched, our professionally trained Match Specialists stay in contact with you regularly as they continue to closely monitor every Match.

PARENT PARTNERS

You know what’s best for your kid. You’re not just part of the process – you’re part of the success. From the start, we need you to inform us about your child’s interests, strengths, and needs – and to approve the mentor Match. Once the Match begins, you remain closely involved approving activities and talking to BBBS staff about your child’s progress.

THE PROCESS

1. INQUIRY
Submit your information to our agency and a staff member will contact you.
2. ORIENTATION
Learn the details of the program and complete the enrollment paperwork.
3. INTERVIEW
Meet together for us to better understand your child’s personality so that we can determine their future Big.
4. SELECTION
Your child is ready to be Matched. Our agency staff will carefully select the perfect Big for your child.
5. MEET
When we find the right Big for your child, we’ll contact you to see if you think it’s a good fit too.
6. UPDATE
Throughout the Match, we’ll keep in contact to ensure your child is on the path to success.
