Big Brothers Program

The Big Brothers Program at St. Xavier High School began in the Fall of 1974. Since that time we have had the pleasure of working with thousands of children. The program pairs high school Juniors and Seniors with younger children, ages 8-12, who are in need of relationships with male role models.

Approximately every other Sunday afternoon during the school year, the high school mentors pick-up their Little Brothers and together they meet the rest of the group at one of several fun and educational activities. These outing typically include activities such as roller skating, hiking, a visit to the Cincinnati Children's Museum, the Cincinnati Zoo, and many other activities. At the conclusion of the day's activity, the student mentors return their Little Brothers to their homes.

This volunteer service program helps to foster positive role models for children.  The high school mentors and little brothers also benefit from their new friendships. Attending each event and maintaining communication with their Little Brothers throughout the year are critical pieces in the success of this mentoring program.

St. Xavier High School pays for the year's activities. Little Brothers and their families are not required to pay for any activities.
