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.
