Big Siblings matches Waltham students in grades K-10 with a Brandeis volunteer to form a one-on-one mentoring relationship. This can be done through sharing meals, playing games, helping with homework, talking and other social activities. The relationship focuses on trust, working together and having fun. In addition to our community-based match program, we also partner with Jewish Big Brother Big Sister for a lunch-time mentoring program at local Waltham Public Schools.
Population Served: Waltham youth in grades K-10
Community Partners: Waltham Public Schools and Jewish Big Brother Big Sister
Transportation: The Brandeis volunteer and Waltham student will agree upon a time and location that works best for them each week.
How to Participate: Parents, teachers, community counselors, guidance counselors and potential volunteers, e-mail the program coordinators at BrandeisBigSibs@yahoo.com
