BBSVC’s Site-Based Mentor Program is a staff-supervised, group model that occurs at the same day and time on a weekly basis, at a common location. Mentors meet with youth at a site familiar to them, which is usually – but not always – a school campus, virtual login, or youth room. BBSVC’s Site-Based Mentor Program often involves an educational or career focus but is not restricted to education, and also includes enrichment opportunities. It is a group dynamic, but also dedicates time to consistent one-to-one match meetups.
