Core - Traditional Match
One Big Brother or Big Sister is matched with a Little whom they meet on a regular basis, giving support,
encouragement to overcome obstacles and reach their highest potential.
Volunteers are 18 years or older.
Enjoy activities within and outside the community.
Community-based Mentoring is the traditional Big Brothers Big Sisters relationship. It’s all about one-on-one time spent with the volunteer and the young person doing things they enjoy — one hour a week filled with shared interests and activities like:
* Shooting hoops
* Playing a board game
* Sharing a pizza
* Taking a walk in the park
* Or just hanging out and talking.
The schedule can be flexible to meet the needs of mentors and young people in different kinds of situations. Some Bigs meet their Littles on the weekend or in the evening. Others get together with their Littles after school. There’s almost no one so busy that they can’t find a way to fit in a few hours a month.
