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 to be a Big Sister today!


Regular Deadline: March 27, 2015.  We will be reviewing new applications through August 2015.  Apply today!
