Our community-based mentoring is the traditional Big Brothers Big Sisters relationship. It is all about one-to-one time with the volunteer mentor and young person doing the things that they enjoy, a few hours a couple of times a month filled with shared interests and activities such as: shooting hoops, playing a board game, scrapbooking, watching movies, taking a walk in the park, sharing a pizza, etc.

The schedule can be flexible to meet the needs of the mentor, child, and child’s family. Some Bigs get together with their Littles on the weekends or in the evenings; other matches meet after school. There’s almost no one too busy to participate in this program and make a difference in a child’s life.

Married couples can also participate in this program together in our Family Match Program.

You must have your own vehicle and valid car insurance to participate in this program.
