Big Pal, Little Pal

This program matches USD student-volunteers with students from Austin (K-2) and Jolley (3-5) Elementary Schools to form a special friendship throughout the school year. Big Pals are expected to spend a minimum of one hour a week with their Little Pal, as well as attend training meetings and monthly group events. Monthly activities may vary, but in the past have included pumpkin painting, attending USD sporting events, and bowling. To wrap up the year, students and their Little Pals will have the opportunity to take a group trip to the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo! This program provides you a chance to make a difference in a child's life unlike any other, and they will undoubtedly impact you in some way too.
