Share a Story
If you have an amazing story about the time you spent while you were matched we would love to hear about it! We know we have many Bigs & Littles who have benefited from the Power of Mentoring and we plan on sharing these stories with the world. If you have an amazing story or you are still connected to your Little please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Littles Alumni Program:
The Littles Alumni Program is a new initiative sponsored by Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC to establish a lifelong connection with all of our Littles who come through the program. This program along with its communications strategy was designed through a consulting engagement project with American Express & Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC. This first-of-its-kind program will engage Littles beyond the match closure by offering additional opportunities and resources. Resources will include programming supported by our new Education Initiative that cover ACT/SAT and college prep courses, high school and college application support, and English and Math remediation. The agency will also provide opportunities for internships, scholarships and resources on colleges, trade schools, and career advancement.
