Military Mentoring Program
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 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.
Our Future. And Theirs.
In order to expand Mentoring Military Children to additional cities and ensure we are making the greatest impact possible on these kids, funding is critical. Your donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters can help make this unique program available to more and more children who need a role model. With additional resources, we could expand our military-related services to more cities across America.
