Programs

Big Opportunities

01

Traditional Program

Grades 2-7th

For children from one-parent or non-traditional households in 2nd-7th grade.  Bigs and Littles get together for a few hours each week doing normal, everyday activities like playing catch, watching a movie or going out for ice cream.  Kids matched with Bigs perform better in school, have improved self-esteem and are less likely to use drugs and alcohol.

 

02

Aces Program

Grades 8-12th and beyond

For students in 8th-12th grade.  Bigs and Littles build a mentoring friendship that will help navigate the exciting, yet sometimes overwhelming process of high school and beyond. Matches get together a few times a month and have fun together doing normal activities, but also focus on college and career planning.  BBBS provides on-going educational and enrichment opportunities for ACES Matches.
