At Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters maintaining each child’s safety is our top priority.
To that end, all of our volunteers agree to an extensive screening and training process that ensures compatible matches for our Littles and, most importantly, the safety of every child. That process includes:
- A comprehensive assessment conducted by a program staff member
- A minimum of three reference checks from different areas of their lives
- A legal background check, including identity verification, criminal background clearance and driving record
Additionally, in order to promote the stability and continuity of matches,we require a one-year commitment from our Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers.
We maintain ongoing communication and contact with parents of Littles throughout the duration of their child’s involvement with JBBBSLA. A professional staff member is always available to answer any questions and discuss any concerns you may have.
Above all else, securing each child’s safety remains the primary focus of every program and service offered at JBBBSLA.
