What can a Little Friend and Big Friend do together?
You and your Big Friend will spend 3 hours a week or 3 hours every other week together doing fun activities that you can enjoy together like going to the park, baking cookies or watching a movie. You and your Big Friend will decide on the fun things you do together for every outing and the activities should be free or low cost. A Big is not expected to buy you expensive things and take you to expensive places. It’s just about having fun and becoming good friends!
What is my responsibility as a Little Friend?
As a Little friend your responsibility is to share ideas with your Big and tell them what you like to do and what you don’t like to do. Be respectful and say thank you after outings. Remember to make calls or return calls to your Big. Tell your parent and caseworker about what you do with your Big. And most of all have a great time with them!
Is there anything else I should know about Good Friend?
Being part of the Good Friend program will also allow you to join in on special events year round such as hiking, camping and other fun activities.
The Good Friend staff are very nice people who want to make sure that you and your Big Friend are having a great time together. They are always available to talk – even if its just to say “hello”!
