School-Based Mentoring

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Missouri

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 7 people are interested
Site based

Bigs and Littles meet for one-to-one mentoring in the classroom, school library, school computer room, neighborhood community center, or other set location. Bigs and Littles typically meet once a week to read together, play sports or computer games, or simply talk about life and personal issues - just as friends do.

School-based mentoring is not a tutoring program. However, research has shown that of all children matched with a Big in school:

  • 58% improved their school performance
  • 65% showed higher levels of self-confidence
  • 55% had a better attitude toward school
