Big Brothers Big Sisters Virtual Mentoring

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada

Adult mentors "Bigs" are needed to form caring relationships and provide guidance to elementary-aged youth "Littles". Due to the ongoing COVID-19 environment, Bigs will meet virtually with their Littles instead of at our usual school or after-school program settings. This virtual mentoring requires just one "meeting" per week, during after-school or weekends, determined by the volunteer and family's schedules. In addition, weekly facilitated meetings will be held on alternating weekday evenings for Bigs and Littles to attend together or separately. We do ask that our Big Brothers and Big Sisters commit to meeting once a week for at least 12 months.

Youth who have a Big Brother or Big Sister have higher aspirations, greater confidence, and improved educational achievements leading to success in life. You have the power to change the life of a child for the better, forever. The only qualification you need is caring!
