School Friends

Provided by
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County

Our School Friends program invites volunteers to spend time with a child at his or her school. School Friends is about building relationships and forming friendships. The program is not academically focused; you may play games, eat lunch together or simply hang out. In just a short amount of time each week, you can communicate to the child how special and important he or she is. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. A minimum commitment of four semesters is required.

Please call 608-661-5437 for information about enrolling in the program.
Mentors meet with Littles on the ground floor of the school.
We have staff who speak Spanish.
