BBBS matches an adult volunteer with a child or youth to become a friend, confidant, and mentor- a Big Brother or Big Sister. This companionship provides the youth with an increased sense of belonging that often leads to enhanced self-esteem, better communication skills, and improved performance at home, school, and within the community. Care is taken in pairing adults and youth so that they have similar interest. Professional caseworkers provide supervision and support plus work with the volunteer, the child, and the child’s family to set goals for the match.NOW SERVING BULLHEAD CITY AND KINGMAN!

Support groups for children and youth in grades K-12 are held at the schools, providing students with a safe place to express their needs, feelings, thoughts and concerns.
Objectives of the program include assistance in building self-esteem, confidence, and positive communication skills. Two trained facilitators (one from the school where the group is held plus a community volunteer) lead the group toward positive outcomes. SAP promotes and encourages a healthy life-style and helps students see how their behavior affects not only themselves but also those around them.
The Student Assistance Program provides groups for pregnant teens, as well as children of divorced parents; those new to Lake Havasu City; those experiencing grief; those retained in school levels; and children who feel they need assistance with personal growth, relationships and family issues.
Classes are designed to help parents strengthen their relationship with their children. Participants
will learn about developmentally appropriate behavior, how to communicate effectively with their
child/children and how to use positive discipline rather than punishment. Classes are one night
a week for six weeks. Classes are available for parents with children ages 0-5, and school age 5
and up. Free Children’s Program is provided.
