Big Brothers Big Sisters looks for partners who can support our current mentoring match load as well as our growth. Unlike many mentoring organizations, ours requires that we carefully select and screen volunteer mentors who are committed to long-term service. We provide staff support to the volunteers, mentees and families throughout the relationships, making available necessary training and ongoing help to keep the mentoring going strong. This is why our mentoring is successful.
Among our greatest needs are male volunteers. Boys disproportionately represent kids on our “waiting to be matched” lists.
We also need funding for necessary staff support required to make and manage more mentoring matches.
Individuals and organization can help us in both areas. Contact us for more information about how you can get involved!
