The Big Siblings program at Longwood University is dedicated to serving the area communities outside of Longwood with its commitment to touch the lives of children who may need encouragement and support otherwise offered by older siblings.

Our Big Sibling program matches accepted applicants with Little Siblings, who have been referred to us as needing support, guidance, or just a little encouragement from a Big Sibling. We invite you to enter a world that many Longwood students are never able to enter. YOU can make a difference in the life of a youth in our community, help them realize their potential, and perhaps give them the hope that they may not receive from their home environment.

*Students interested in becoming a Big Sibling for the Academic Year (Fall through Spring Semesters) must apply in the Spring Semester.  Students interested in joining the program mid-way through the Academic Year must apply in the Fall Semester. Check back often for updates and upcoming application requirements and deadlines.
