Community - Based Program: If catching a ball game, spending a day in the park, watching a movie or just hanging out sharing laughs sounds fun, this program is for you. You'll get to act like a kid again and both your lives will be forever changed by the experience. Volunteers will pick up their Little at least twice a month from the home to spend time together.
School - Based Program: For Bigs able to break away from the office for lunch or who enjoy a set schedule for meeting their Little, this opportunity matches you with a Little in a local school. All it takes is visiting your Little once a week at a school to have lunch, play computer games, read books or just talk.
