Little Big Virtual Academy

The purpose of the Little Big Virtual Academy is to keep Littles and Bigs connected during times of physically distancing. When matches might not be able meet in-person, they can continue to communicate and interact via phone and computer. The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa team has compiled a list of fun and interactive activities and resources for Littles and Bigs to do together- check them out below!
