The Community-Based Program allows mentors the opportunity to pick up their Little Sib at their home in order to spend time in the community. The time involved is 6-8 hours each month, for a 12 month period. Outings can range from going for a walk, working on arts and crafts, taking a bike ride, watching a sporting event, or any other safe activity you'd like to do! It's not about the money you spend, but rather the time spent with your Little. Volunteer applicants for this program must be at least 19 years old, have a valid driver's license, and reliable transportation.
The School-Based Program is mentoring that takes place at your assigned Little Sib's school. The time involved is one hour per week during the school day. Your time spent at the school can include assisting with academics, shooting hoops, doing crafts, reading or eating lunch together, and playing games. To apply for this program, you must be 18 or older and have access to reliable transportation to get to your Little's school.
Are you a school counselor, teacher, or administrator that would like to see a mentoring program come to your school? We work with High Schools and Elementary Schools to build relationships and implement our High School Bigs program. The students in your district, as a group or individually, could be meeting regularly throughout the school year to engage in mentoring that is supported by our professional staff. Mentors start in 11th grade, and could be matched with a Kindergarten-5th grade student within their district. For more information or questions, reach out to us!
