Ways to help youth thrive

"Big" Mentor

Be a Big... make a difference in the life of a Little from Pleasant Ridge Montessori! You have what it takes to be a Big if you would enjoy serving as a positive role model, supporting and encouraging a child in need, helping a child develop new skills and having fun! Littles are students at Pleasant Ridge Montessori School ages 9-12 who will benefit from the extra support that a consistent, adult friend can provide. Mentoring takes place weekly from September through May on Wednesdays, from 5:00-6:30 pm, with dinner included. As a Big, you will meet with the same child once a week in a group setting. You and your Little will have opportunities to interact one-to-one, with other matched pairs, and with the entire group. We provide a variety of games and activities for you and your Little to learn from and enjoy. We provide mentor training and ongoing support and coaching. Together, we help children reach their potential by connecting them with caring, adult role models who guide them in making positive choices about their future. You have what it takes to be a positive role model to a child-just a few hours a month can make a difference for a lifetime.
