CHILD SAFETY IS PRIORITY

Your child's safety is most important. Each match is closely monitored and supported by a professionally trained match specialist. All mentor applicants go through extensive screening prior to being accepted as a Big.

 

This process includes completing an official application, running a comprehensive criminal background and driving record (for community-based matches) check, speaking to personal references, and conducting a thorough in-person interview. 

FAMILY PARTNERSHIPS

When it comes to the future of our children and the well-being of our communities, we are all in this together! In order for the mentoring relationships to be successful, we need the parents or guardians to be involved and engaged every step of the way.
