My son (16 year old) started through the school this year as a "big" for a boy in the 4th or 5th grade (cannot remember which). He really enjoys it and sees it as something he would like to stick with. As far as on the "little" end I think it is a great thing. What child/teen could not benefit from another good influence in their life? And the application process is really good at matching, even through the school DS had to have references and an interview and he said all the matches in their group are perfect except one of his friends and his "little" seemed to be the 'leftovers' on each end.
