Match Basics

For a few hours, a couple times a month, you can give your Young Friend the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing their life. Play a board game. Make fun crafts. Hit the playground together. Below you will find information on how to navigate your match.
