Who are the children in the program?

Our Littles come from many types of home environments and family structures, different social-economic levels, ethnic backgrounds and neighborhoods and schools across all communities. We have boys and girls in our program. We try to match Bigs with Littles of the same sex and same ethnicity whenever we can—currently males, specifically African American male volunteers, are our greatest need. Our Littles’ backgrounds and personalities are unique, but the thing they all share in common is a need for friendship with a caring adult.
