MiND partnered with many organizations to make “The A Game.” One of them was Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeastern Pennsylvania. The impact of mentors on the participating students is measurable and sometimes the learning goes both ways. While the “Bigs” encourage the “Littles” to make good choices and stay in school, sometimes it’s the “Littles” who will give the sage advice to the “Bigs.”

Created in conjunction with “The A Game,” this program was made possible in part by the Wyncote Foundation.
