Welcome, M.A.P.S. matches!
As an Elementary match, you are officially welcomed into the M.A.P.S. Program! In an effort to help our Littles find their “direction” in life, Big Brothers Big Sisters will use the MAPS program to guide your match through the elementary years. Matches Actively Preparing for Success will find focus in 5 areas:
Health & Wellness
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Math)
MAPS matches will be invited to attend two activities per month – one that is strictly for FUN and the other that will be focused on one of the five areas above. Can’t make it to the activities? Use this guidebook for great examples of how you can incorporate those five focus areas into your match on your own. Fun prizes will be offered throughout the year as you fill in your passport– each MAPS activity you attend, and each independent activity you complete from this guidebook will earn you a stamp in your passport. Just let your Program Specialist know what activity you completed, and you’ll receive a stamp in the mail! Special recognition will be given to any MAPS match who completes their passport! Please note that School-Based Plus matches may only visit on school grounds or at a BBBS-sponsored activity. Some of the ideas in this guidebook may be suitable for Community-Based matches only.
