Why Should I Become a Mentor?
Being a BIG BROTHER, BIG SISTER, BIG COUPLE or BIG FAMILY is one of the most enjoyable and fulfilling things you will ever do. You have the opportunity to help shape a child’s future for the better by empowering him or her to achieve. The best part is, it’s actually a lot of fun. You and your LITTLE can share the kinds of activities you already like to do.
There is a FIT for YOU!
We know you are busy. Cool thing is, mentoring works around your schedule. Our staff are trained social services professionals here to help whenever you need it. You will be well-equipped with loads of information, advice, tips and answers. We have activity ideas, organized events and a handy list of discounts available to our Matches.
Matches typically meet twice a month on evenings and/or weekends at the convenience of both parties. Volunteers coordinate match times and activities directly with the parent. Match outings are usually two hours but will vary based on time availability and match activities. Matches get to know each other and develop their friendships through various activities they enjoy such as taking a walk, attending sporting events, visiting the library or partaking in a favorite hobby, etc. The possibilities are limitless and flexible. For this program option, you must be at least 18 years old, have a driver’s license, access to a vehicle and auto insurance.
Volunteers visit a Little at an elementary school near their home, work or high school. Weekly meetings occur over the child’s lunch/recess during the school year. Matches get to know each other and develop their friendships through various activities such as board games, cards, puzzles, coloring and more! For this program option, you must be at least 16 years old and must have a valid drivers license.
