Parent/Guardian Statement of Understanding

In submitting this application to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Coastal & Northern New Jersey (BBBSCNNJ) for my child, I understand that:

  • If accepted, I will abide by the ground rules and policies of BBBSCNNJ including no overnight visits between Bigs and Littles.
  • The information on this application is true to the best of my knowledge. Also, I have not withheld any information regarding my child's health, personality, or behavior which, if later revealed, is likely to have a significant adverse effect on the mentoring relationship.
  • BBBSCNNJ does not discriminate nor exclude children or volunteers on the basis of race, religion, natural origin, gender, sexual orientation, veteran status, disability or marital status.
  • Acceptance into the program will be determined by the BBBSCNNJ staff based on program/agency criteria and information obtained from the application, interview, and any other relevant sources.
  • If accepted, there is no guarantee that a Big Brother or Big Sister for my child will be identified.
  • If a potential Big Brother/Big Sister does become available, I will be given general information about him/her before any match is made. This information will be gathered from the volunteer interview. Only the information determined to be pertinent by the case manager will be shared.
  • I am in no way obligated to accept any proposed Big Brother or Big Sister for my child. Only a Big Brother or Big Sister that I have approved will be matched with my child.
  • Pertinent information from my child's file will be shared with the potential volunteer. This information will be shared on a first name basis only until a match has been agreed upon.
  • Every reasonable precaution will be taken to ensure the safety of my child while he or she is participating in the BBBSCNNJ program. I relinquish all claims for injuries of any nature while my child is engaged in a BBBSCNNJ activity.
