Enroll a Little
Magic While You Wait
Magic While You Wait is designed for our children who have signed up for the Big Brothers Big Sisters program and are in the process of being matched to their Big Brother or Big Sister.
Matching a Big with a Little is not something we take lightly, or something we rush. We use the word "match" for a reason. We try to find a Big who likes the same things as the Little, who doesn’t live too far away, someone who can share their interests with their Little.
In other words, we are looking for just the right person for your child, which takes time. Sometimes it can take months. While we are looking for the perfect Big for your child, we also want to stay in contact with you, and we want you to stay in contact with us.

Please let us know. Just because you may not have heard from us does not mean we don’t want to hear from you!
Magic While You Wait Events
January - MLK March
In January, Big Brothers Big Sisters invites our Littles to join us at the Martin Luther King Jr. March, the largest of its kind in the country.
April - Fiesta River Parade
In April, we invite all of our Littles to watch the San Antonio River Parade, thanks to tickets donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters by the Texas Cavaliers.
During the summer, Big Brothers Big Sisters hosts several fun activities to help keep your child occupied while school is out.
Each year in October or November, we host one of our most popular events, the annual Fall Festival. It features games, prizes, food, hayrides, and a costume contest.
December Holiday Party
In December we host a holiday party for all of our Littles, with arts & crafts, pot luck desserts and we watch a holiday-themed movie.
There are events throughout the year to help you and your family remain connected to the agency while we search for the perfect Big for your child. Keep in touch with us for when we receive special donations, like tickets to the Zoo or to see the Spurs!
