The organization's mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
Sidekicks: during the school year, caseworkers coordinate and supervise the site based program, a school-based initiative that pairs high-school volunteers with elementary school children during after-school hours. Homework assistance, games, snacks and important social time is supervised at schools throughout summit and medina counties. In 2013, 192 children participated at eight public schools.
community matches: big brothers and big sisters are volunteers at least 18 years of age who are willing to be a positive influence in the life of a child. These volunteers spend the amount of time required to form and maintain a relationship with children ages 6-18. The volunteers act as role models and friends to the children with the goal of increasing their self-confidence as well as being a support system for them. 126 kids were matched with volunteers in 2013.
