Ways to help

Big Friend Mentors

Our Big Friends program enables adult volunteers the opportunity to offer at least two hours of weekly support to preschool children, within the school day, in public and private preschools in Ypsilanti. Our mentors help support kids who sometimes struggle with the demands and expectations of their school experience. We help them to be successful in the classroom, and to prepare for the success that awaits them in years to come. Mentors also work to build a relationship with parents, so we can help them access the resources everyone needs to maintain strong, thriving families.

About usIt takes a community to raise a child. Washtenaw Promise is proud to be a part of that community. Washtenaw Promise works to support early childhood education in the community by facilitating more information sharing, more collaborative problem solving and more connection to resources. The stresses of poverty, social injustice, and emotional challenges present barriers to the bright future that every child needs and deserves. Washtenaw Promise works with children, young families, schools and the community, to remove those barriers. We want early childhood educators and providers to thrive, to be sustainable and healthy, and to know that the work they do provides children the very foundation needed for success in the world today.
