Big Brothers Big Sisters seeks to change the lives of children facing adversity for the better, forever. We operate in communities all across Southeastern New mexico. Our mentors work with children in the community, in their schools, on military bases, and many places in between.
Our unique brand of one-to-one mentoring has a Big impact all over Southeastern New Mexico.
Many relationships between Bigs and Littles fall under our Community-based programs.
These are one-to-one outings and activities, doing things they enjoy together. Some Bigs meet their Littles on the weekends. Others get together with their Littles in the evenings. Each match is unique and develops a schedule that works for them.
Community-based Bigs get newsletter updates with activity ideas and opportunities for donor-supported sporting and entertainment events.
It may sound obvious, but sometimes the best place to help a child realize their potential is at school. Kids enjoy having their Bigs meet with them there, whether it’s in the classroom or on the playground. And parents know what a positive impact it makes.
Although it takes place at schools, our School-Based Mentoring program isn’t limited to the classroom. Of course, some Littles do talk with their Bigs about class, or do homework, or read together, but it’s perfectly fine to shoot hoops in the gym or play on the playground. At the end of the day, it's really all about starting a friendship, providing guidance and inspiring them to reach their potential.
