The Little Moms offer a training which aims to develop your listening and relational skills.
We believe that the condition of knowing to be a good listener to others implies the practice of knowing to listen to one self. This training is a prerequisite to become a Big Sister and is free of charge.

The Little Moms supervise and provide valuable support for the Big Sisters who are mentoring teenagers.
A designated Little Mom accompanies a Big Sister during her 9-month mentorship mission and meets her once every two months.
The Little Mom ensures the relationship between the Big Sister and the Little Sister is going well and answers the Big Sister’s questions during her mission. For the Big Sister, supervision is a time for listening, advice, openness, and learning.
Little Moms may consult a supervising psychologist in case of a particular situation. This supervision applies to the rules of confidentiality and responsibility.
