Become A Big

Bigs serve as teachers, friends, advocates—mentors. They provide guidance to their matched Littles. Bigs and Littles choose and participate in activities they both enjoy such as playing sports, hiking, reading books or simply spending a day at the park together.

Two Ways You Can Mentor

Site-Based Mentoring:

A match between a child and mentor that meet one-to-one during the school day or while the child is at an approved after school program. This particular setting provides additional support systems for our mentors. Site based activities can include but are not limited to, playing sports, arts and crafts or working on homework. The child and mentor must meet a minimum of 1 hour per week.

Mentors must be:

18 years old
Commit for 12 months
Meet with a Little a minimum of 1 - 2 hours each week
Complete an in-person interview and a criminal background check
Provide transportation and proof of car insurance at all times
Maintain regular communication with agency staff
Communicate regularly with the child’s parent/guardian
Track and report all outings monthly
Plan weekly activities that will be positive, fun, and educational for the child

Mentoring in the Community:

A match between a child and a mentor that meet one-to-one at a time that is agreed upon by the mentor and parent/guardian. (Typically matches will meet on the weekends or evenings.) Community-based activities can include but are not limited to visits to the park, museum or movie theater. The child and mentor must meet a minimum of 1 hour per week.
