Big Sibs is one of CI’s founding programs. It provides a unique mentoring opportunity for local youth, called Littles, who would benefit from a positive adult role model. Littles from Harlem, Washington Heights, and Morningside Heights, are paired with BIGS from Columbia or Barnard, who build a big brother/sister relationship. Growing together, sharing experiences, and developing trust and friendship provide Littles with stable, ongoing companionship. Big Sibs requires a minimum two-year commitment with weekly outings lasting 3-5 hours. Sessions are every Sunday from 10:00am - 2:00pm.
