Be a Big Sister

Join a supportive community of college women and staff, meet dynamic middle schools girls, and embark upon one of your most meaningful learning experiences at UVa!

As a Big Sister, you will be matched with a local 7th or 8th grade middle school girl. You and she and 5-8 other pairs of Big/Little Sisters meet as a group after school each week. You’ll also spend time with just your Little Sister doing fun activities in the Charlottesville area. In addition, you will enroll in a three-credit class that meets during the fall semester and a one-credit class that meets during the spring semester.


Apply for the 2017-18 school year!

Deadline Extended! We will continue to accept applications on a rolling basis through the end of the Spring Semester!

For more information, please contact and one of our awesome YWLP Team Members will be happy to assist you.
