COMMUNITY BASED

Community-Based Mentoring is the traditional Big Brothers Big Sisters’ program, where Bigs over 21 and Littles, from 6 – 15 get together on their own to share fun activities they both enjoy. *(Once in the program matches can stay until the little is 21). The Community Program is flexible to accommodate a variety of schedules. Volunteers meet with a child for two to four hours, two to four times a month for a minimum of one year. Consistency and commitment are the cornerstones of this program.
