Volunteer mentors provide their Little with one-on-one time and attention, typically two to four times a month doing a planned activity.
Volunteer mentors spend one hour per week at a school with a child helping them with homework, reading, playing educational games and other work the teacher has assigned, while also providing friendship and support.
Volunteer mentors see their Little in the school and the community setting for six to eight hours throughout the month.
