Ways to help youth thrive

Community-Based Mentor

The Community-Based program pairs children in one to one relationships with caring adult volunteers like you! Being a Big Brother or Big Sister or Big Couple is one of the most rewarding and enjoyable things you will ever do. Meeting just 2-4 times a month can change a young person’s life. In the Community-Based program, you will go to your little’s house, pick him or her up and take them out on an activity. The friendship you build is what helps these children overcome amazing obstacles in their lives. Your Little can join you for the kinds of activities you already like to do, such as shooting hoops, playing a board game, sharing a pizza, taking a walk in the park, or just hanging out and talking. Little Brothers and Little Sisters come from all kinds of backgrounds. Some are really little (as young as seven) and some are teenagers. Some may live on your block and some a few miles away. Some just need an extra friend and some have a lot of obstacles to overcome. What they all have in common is that they need the friendship and guidance of someone like you! We want to fit the program into your life, so our volunteers can be an individual female (Big Sister) or male (Big Brother), a couple (Big Couple) or even a family that volunteers together (Big Family).

Site-Based Mentor

Become a site-based Big by joining our mentoring program where you interact with a student from local elementary schools once a week! You will start your time together with a snack or lunch and socializing. After everyone arrives you will help with homework and academic tutoring. The rest of your time together is filled with organized, fun activities that focus on one-to-one interactions between you and your mentee! You are paired with the same child each week to help establish a closer relationship with the child. When you donate your time to spend with your mentee, you fill the need for a special friend in their life.
