Enroll a Child
Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ocean State works closely with parents/guardians to find the best Mentor for your child. Before your child is matched, our Program Coordinators will meet with you and your child to learn about your child’s needs, interest, personality and preferences. As the person who knows your child best, we value your input. No match is made without the approval from the parent/guardian and child.
To be eligible to participate in our program, a child must:
- Be between the ages of 7 and 15
- Reside in Rhode Island
- Be available to meet with a mentor two to four times per month for at least one year
- Want to have a mentor and participate in the program
- Have a Parent/Guardian willing and capable of supporting the match relationship
