Little Moms accompany a group of Big Sisters throughout a training period focused on listening skills.
The training lasts over eight meetings in small groups.
This training is essential for the Big Sister’s mentorship mission.
The training revolves around these themes:
The relationship and its limits within the mentorship program
What does “to listen” really mean? Listening to oneself and to others
How to follow the Little Sister’s emotions and answer her needs
The Big Sister’s role during her accompanying mission
Little Moms propose several workshops to the Little Sisters and Big Sisters during their time of mission.
They invite specialist professionals to intervene in different subjects like:
Awareness about one’s feminine cycle
Awareness about one’s body image
Respecting the relationship limits (moral and sexual abuse)
Affirming one’s identity
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.
