Success Stories

Jo and Izabella
A story about a beautiful relationship that resulted from a local match in SWLA that will be shared nationally through the Big Brothers Big Sisters corporate office!
Angie and Kyla
Longevity is something that the case workers at Big Brothers Big Sisters strive for when matching a volunteer and a child. Caseworkers look for commonalities in both personality and interests. The volunteer and child are asked to commit to a minimum of one year, with the hopes that the relationship will continue for many years to come.

Programs Offered

Community Based Mentoring
This volunteer experience allows an adult to engage in numerous activities with a child at his or her leisure. Volunteers are asked to commit to one year of mentoring service with a child. Volunteers are encouraged to engage the child in an activity at least twice a month. These activities may be simply washing a car, popping pop-corn and watching a movie, or exploring the outdoors.
Foster Grandparent Program
The Foster Grandparent Program was developed in 1965 as a cooperative effort between the Office of Economic Opportunity and the Department of Health Education and Welfare (HEW) in Washington, D.C. The Foster Grandparent Program moved to the Lake Area in the fall of 1999. Its purpose is to enable low-income senior citizens to supplement their income in a meaningful way by providing volunteer service to special-needs children.
