Supervision and Support for all match participants
Once a match is made, Big Brothers Big Sisters professional staff maintains a relationship with all participants in order to supervise and support the match. The program staff typically interacts with the match on a monthly basis, by telephone or in person.
The agency also organizes match activities to create a time for all volunteers and children to meet and converse.
The match supervision and support services are one of the most important aspects of the Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring model.
