Mentoring Children of Military Families Initiative matches Bigs with Littles whose parent(s) is deployed overseas, is wounded or who died while in active military service. Military families are challenged to achieve academic and social success while facing a tremendous amount of stress. Big Brothers Big Sisters can help children of these families with enduring and meaningful match relationships.
In the greater Washington region, there are numerous military installations of the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. Providing a Big Brother or a Big Sister can help a child make positive changes.
The military families and children represent significant areas of resources and growth of our mentoring services. With our priority for children of military families, BBBS is focused on building high-level partnerships with the military and schools serving their families.
