  • About Us
    Big Brothers Big Sisters hosts three programs:

    1) BBBS Reads- Utilizing AmeriCorps Members and locally funded Members, literacy tutoring is provided to students 3 times a week in 30 minute sessions. These Members serve approximately 25 hours a week/900 hours a year and serve 10-12 VPK-3rd grade students each.

    2) Site Based Mentoring- Community volunteers use literacy as the base of a long-term supported relationship one-on-one with a child in grades K-5. This program focuses on social emotional learning as well as academics.

    3) Community Based Mentoring- Community volunteers spend time with their Little in the community doing things together like fishing, watching movies and other activities. The focus is on life skills and social emotional skills. This program is for students in K-12th grade.
