Selection and Preparation of Big Brother Service Cases

By Donald B. Hurwitz

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, September 1937

Before a child can be accepted as a client of the Jewish Big Brothers Association, it is necessary to know as much as possible about the personality, background, interests, relationships and potentialities of the prospective Little Brother, and to attempt to find an understanding and accepting individual with similar interests who will serve as a Big Brother to him. There must be a thorough discussion of the facts available by the case work, Big Brother and Big Brother supervisor before any contact is made with the boy, and there must be professional supervision of the Big Brother at all times.
