Become a Little Pal

Would Your Child Benefit the Mentorship of a Big Pal?

As a parent, you recognize the potential of your child better than anyone. By giving your child the opportunity to be part of Big Pals-Little Pals, you’re starting them down a path to an even brighter, more promising future.

It all starts with the right role models. And Big Pals-Little Pals is the place to start a relationship with one. We recruit, screen, match and support mentoring relationships that have changed the lives of hundreds of young people in the Columbus community — one Little Pal at a time.

Get started by completing a Little Pal Application today.

Parents wanted.

You know what’s best for your child. So we’ll need your help from the start, providing information about your child’s strengths and needs, and ultimately approving the Big Pal match. But your role doesn’t end there. Parents/guardians are not just part of the process, they’re part of the success.

Safety from the start.

Your child’s safety is extremely important to us. Big Pals- Little Pals conducts a thorough background check on every volunteer in our program, and every relationship is closely monitored and supported by our trained staff.
