What is the Virtual Siblings Program? What do we do?
In the light of Pali High's mission to inspire students of all backgrounds to create a positive difference in the community, one of our Ambassadors, Kimiya Natan, has created the Virtual Siblings Program. This program inspires friendships and memories while working to unite people from all walks of life under one common goal: supporting each other. Our program pairs participating students with Pali Ambassadors who would serve as their “Ambassador Sibling”. Partners will plan weekly or bi-weekly virtual meetings at the time of their convenience and have the opportunity to pursue any bonding activity. They can play games, talk, educate each other, and share ideas, all while creating friendships and memories.
Elementary or middle school students who participate in this program need to first complete our online interest form with contact information, hobbies, and preferred gender of their “Ambassador Sibling”. After filling out the form, the student will be paired with a Palisades Ambassador with similar interests who would be their “Virtual Sibling”.
Due to the pandemic, we understand that many students spend their days at home where every day feels the same. With childhood being such an important time for one's development, socialization, and growth, we want this program to be an outlet where children can enjoy their time during the pandemic with someone new.
