School Friends is a site-based mentoring program that takes place at the Little's school once per week usually during lunch or after school. Although it takes place at schools, our School Friends 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.
