Refer a child

Thank you for your interest in referring a child to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Minnesota

We accept referrals from teachers, social workers, therapists, guidance counselors, and other professionals. However enrollment in our program requires approval and participation by a child's parent or legal guardian. All parents must want their children to be in our program, and all children must want a mentor.

Once a youth referral has been received by our agency, our  staff will contact the child’s parent or legal guardian to determine if this is the right program for their child and determine if their child meets program eligibility criteria. 

Please send all youth referral forms along with a consent and release form to [email protected]BigDefenders.org or fax to 320.253.1702.

If you have any questions, please call our office at 320.253.1616
