Bigs and Littles meet for 1-on-1 mentoring in the classroom, school library, school computer room, neighborhood community center, or other school-based location. Bigs and Littles typically meet for one hour once per week to read together, play sports or computer games, or simply talk about life - just as friends do.
School-based mentoring is not a tutoring program; it's more like guidance. However, research has shown children matched with a Big in their school experienced some rather significant improvements in their quality of life:
- 58% improved academic performance
- 65% demonstrated higher levels of self-confidence
- 55% had a better attitude toward school
