Information Session Questionnaire




The correct answer is "No." The Littles in our program have great inherent potential. A mentor is someone that helps the Little realize their potential, expose them to different opportunities, celebrate their own environment, do different activities in the community, have in-depth conversations to help the Little explore their strengths and broaden their horizons. In the coming days, you'll learn more about your role as a potential Big and the expectations that come with that. 

Let's get some information about you...
