The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Delaware team have been working hard to adapt to COVID-19 best safety practices. Fall of 2020 saw the introduction of virtual mentoring for our school based sites. The community based program has been adapted to have volunteers do training virtually, first match meetings can happen in person or virtually depending on the comfort level for Mentors and the families. Finally, our staff has spent time training and working on new programs to empower our waiting list littles in person and socially distanced.
Staff will transition back to offices within the next few months and the summer will see an increase in program and fundraising activities. We are thankful for the strong support of the Delaware community during this difficult time. We will continue to be diligent in the fight to empower and defend the potential of Delaware’s most at risk youth.
