Children with a parent in the military, including a deployed parent, face unique challenges that may include separation and loss in addition to the stresses of military life. To help provide the additional support these children need, Big Brothers Big Sisters has established a program called the Military Mentoring Program.
It joins children, ages 6 through 18, of parents in the military with Bigs who are in the military, ROTC or military school. This program has recently been given significant support through a partnership with the T. Boone Pickens Foundation as well as The Jack in the Box Foundation. In addition, Big Brothers Big Sisters has established a Military Community Advisory Council to advise our organization on policy and practices related to mentoring children in the military community.
By enrolling your child with Big Brothers Big Sisters, you give them a chance to see their unlimited potential and develop into even more responsible, successful, well-rounded individuals.
