Note from our CEO
Hello Bigs, Littles, families, Board Members, curious folks,
These past two years have been a bit of a rollercoaster, we at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Big Sky Country have been working hard to keep our participants, staff and community safe and thriving.
As COVID numbers continue growing in Montana--including Gallatin and Park Counties-- we have some updates on BBBS measures to help keep participants, staff, and our wider community safe.
- Don’t meet if one of you or someone in your household doesn’t feel well. Each person in the match needs to assess his/her own health before each meeting and discuss with each other if the meeting should be in-person or virtual;
- Conduct outdoor meetings when possible, where there are not people in close proximity. View our list for ideas (see below).
- Bigs and Littles should maintain a distance between each other and others of six (6) feet or more.
- Wash hands or use a sanitizer frequently and keep hands away from the face.
- Wear a face mask during the meeting.
- In cars, Bigs and Littles shall each wear a face mask and Littles shall sit in the rear passenger side seat. If it seems best to avoid transporting the Little, the Big should consider meetings in the child’s neighborhood or nearby park.
Please reach out if you have ANY questions.
Below are some resources and updates for our community and site-based matches. Take care of each other.
In love and gratitude,
BBBS staff are on a hybrid work schedule - partly in the office and partly at home. We understand that this is a challenging time, please feel free to reach out to us for any reason.
We are still accepting applications for Bigs and Littles! We can conduct match interviews and other enrollment steps via video conference or in person. We ask for all in person interviewees to wear a mask.
