Bigs and Littles have fun together — and create memories that last a lifetime. We call it “Little moments … Big magic.” Research points to the powerful, positive, lasting impact Bigs have on children’s lives. Littles are:
52% less likely to skip school
46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
More likely to get along with their families and peers
Jonathon Strouse and Little Brother, Devon, celebrated their one year match anniversary in July 2012, and like many of the Community Based matches, the two have built a tight bond that not only allows them to have fun together, but also pushes Devon (and Jonathon alike) to live up to his potential and try new things.
