Thank you so much for applying to become a High School Big!

What's next?

1. A program manager will begin processing your application and reach out to you to set up an interview to discuss your interests, background, and preferences to help find a great match with a child.

3. Our staff will reach out to your references.

4. Staff will provide a training session and resource manual and works you to determine the best possible match with a child.

5. When we think we have a Little who would be a good fit, we will call you to share information about the potential match*. If you and the Little and their guardian agree that the match sounds suitable, we will set up a match meeting to introduce everyone. At this point, the match relationship begins!

6. Once a match is made, Big Brothers Big Sisters' high-quality Standards of Practice require ongoing contact with Bigs, Littles, and parents. For community-based matches, that means a monthly connection to confirm that Big and Little are getting along well, ensure child safety, and support the relationship. School-and-site-based programs will have an initial second-week check-in with the parent/guardian and monthly check-ins with Bigs and Littles.

As a potential Big, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at any time during the process.
