Community-Based Mentoring Program
Our Community-Based Mentoring program is a minimum one-year program in which the Big and Little consistently meet 6-12 hours a month.* Matches are made with considerations to geographic location, interests, activities and personalities.
Getting together is a great time for both Bigs and Littles. It doesn’t require a special occasion or expensive activities; just a few times every month sharing simple things you already enjoy with a young person. Things like…
Playing a board game
Sharing a pizza
Taking a walk in the park
Just hanging out and talking
