Big Brothers Big Sisters

Big Brothers Big Sisters host events on campus for Bigs and Littles, with our goal being to
inspire the children in this program to continue ongoing education and think about potential careers in medicine and healthcare. Events include "Doctor for a Day," which consists of interactive activities in The Simulation Center. During these events, our student volunteers help teach healthcare skills, including suturing, intubation, and scrubbing in for surgery, to our event attendees. Learning Objectives

1.     Provide activities to Bigs and Littles that highlight education

2.     Provide a space where children involved in the program can learn about educational          and career choices in healthcare

3.     Serve as role models in our communities to show children that education is an                  achievable goal

4.     Provide age appropriate, hands-on activities to teach children about medicine and              healthcare

5.     Provide continuous interaction and careful follow-up with students
