For a freshman, the first day of school can be daunting. The Big Brother Program is designed to welcome new students to the Bosco Tech family in a fun and caring way. Initially started through the introductory Tech Fest activities, freshmen were paired with upperclassmen at an ice breaking competition of sports and fun. Over the years, Tech Fest has evolved into what we now refer to as The Salesian Experience, designed to welcome new students into our school community.
Your Big Brother will be a resource person for you during your crucial first semester at Bosco. You and your Big Brother will be a part of a larger group of Big and Little Brothers with a faculty Aunt or Uncle to help you out.
This program provides incoming students with more knowledge about the school and the people there. So if a freshman has any problems, they can have somebody experienced to talk to and ask questions like, “Where are my classes?”, and anything else they might want to know.
All Big Brothers are trained through a peer ministry class which gives them a chance to develop the leadership and social skills that will serve them at Don Bosco and beyond. Steadily, our Big Brother program is enhancing our school’s services for the youth. These services are in keeping with what Don Bosco called an oratory model where a boy can play, pray, receive an education and feel like he is at home.
