You can apply for a FREE School Based Mentoring program! Operation Bigs is a Big Brothers Big Sisters one-to-one mentoring program for children in military families.


In this program adult volunteers (Bigs) visit with the students (Littles) once a week for one hour at their school campus. The weekly sessions are supervised by a professional Big Brothers Big Sisters staff member.  Each Big and Little makes a commitment to meeting for one calendar year.  During the session Bigs & Littles engage in sports and recreational activities, play fun board games and card games, put together arts & crafts projects, or simply talk about life—just as friends do.  Through this friendship children are provided with quality one-on-one attention, encouragement, and support. Our most recent Youth Outcomes Report (June 2013) shows children who have participated in school-based mentoring programs have maintained or improved their outlook in areas of social acceptance, scholastic competence, educational expectations, & academic performance. Operation Bigs sessions meet on Tuesdays from 3:00-4:00.


Eligibility requirements for this program are: at least 7 years old, a military dependent, & able to participate for one calendar year.   For questions please contact Cory Scurlock at 760-889-4451 or
