Child Waiting List Activities

Child Waiting List Activities

"Big For a Day" programming program is great for volunteers who want to pitch in and help the organization, but don’t have the time to devote to weekly mentoring. These are events that often pair mentors for a fun, one-time activity such as bowling, kickball or a cookout. There are usually 100 children or more on our waiting list at any given time, and it is important to help these kids feel included in our program until they meet their mentors. Big For a Day is a way of giving the children and community members an opportunity to take part in BBBS events. It also keeps us in face-to-face contact with Waiting List families so we can make the best match possible for each child. Waiting List activities are held in each of our counties, though more regularly in Macon, McLean and Champaign.
