The mission of Little Brother/Little Sister is for youth in the Winooski area to have an additional positive role model in their life and to have consistency in what can be an unstable childhood. By matching Littles with a Big for three to four years, we hope that they will be able to build a strong relationship based on fun, trust, and reliability.
Little Brother/Little Sister (LBLS) is a collaborative mentoring program between the JFK Elementary School in Winooski and Saint Michael’s College. The children (littles) are first through third graders and are nominated by their parents, teachers or guidance counselors to participate in the program. Littles come to SMC for 3 hours each week to play in the gym, read in the library, play games, and eat in the cafeteria on a one-on-one basis or in small groups. We also have other events and some fieldtrips throughout the year.
Mentoring with Little Brother/Little Sister requires an application and interview as well as a 3-4 year commitment to the program. Applications are available in September.
