It takes Little to be Big in a child’s eyes! What better way to motivate and inspire a child than to visit them at school for a "power lunch"! Big Brothers Big Sisters is partnering with area school districts to host community members at select elementary schools.
Send a strong message! "Big for a Day" lunch hour events provide you and your team the opportunity to send a strong message to youth that the community supports and believes in their potential. Volunteers will learn about our area schools, meet great kids and gain a greater understanding of how they can support youth initiatives like Big Brothers Big Sisters.
A POWER lunch! Following a brief welcome by school administration and BBBS staff, you'll be introduced and paired with a student for the lunch/recess hour. Volunteers are provided lunch courtesy of BBBS. Staff facilitate a variety of icebreakers and fun activities that allow you to get to know your student and have a great experience. The Power Lunch lasts approximately 1.5 hours (total time commitment) and is in a group setting, with all volunteers and students in the same general area.
Make it a group thing! Gather a group of employees/co-workers to participate! Wear your company shirts. Bring some swag for your student or the group!
