Become a Big today!
By taking just a couple hours each week, you can share the gift of friendship with a youth in your community. As a "Big" - a mentor - all you need to do is listen, laugh, and talk. Share a hobby, play catch, explore a museum, ride bikes, or just hang out. Be a mentor, a role model, a friend...be someone your Little can count on. It's that simple!
No matter where you live in Ventura County, right now there is a child in your community waiting for a Big. These children can develop life skills and self-confidence with the support of mentors who care. Research proves that the positive influence of a mentor makes a significant difference in the life of a youth who needs a role model.
But it's not just the Littles who benefit. Bigs often say that they discover their own personal benefits and tell us, "I get back so much more than I give."
Are you ready to be a Big? Call us or stop by our office to start the process!
We ask Big mentors to try and spend 2 hours weekly with their Little for a minimum of one year...a small amount of time for a lifetime of difference!
