Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh

Mentor2.0 is a program developed in partnership with iMentor that brings technology-enriched, one-to-one mentoring to high school students. Through collaboration with schools, companies and individuals, mentor2.0 provides high-impact mentoring relationships aimed at giving high school students the support and guidance they need to graduate high school and succeed in post-secondary options and life after high school.

Ninth grade students from Pittsburgh Brashear High School STEAM program are matched in one-to-one mentoring relationships with mentors. The students will work with their mentors in-person and online - for two years at minimum, but ideally through high school graduation - with a strong focus on post-secondary readiness. Ultimately, the volunteer's responsibilities include one email message per week (sent anytime, anywhere) and one evening in-person event per month (during the school year). We are adhering to all CDC guidelines and school policies regarding COVID19.

Mission Statement

The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh is to make positive differences in the lives of children by providing one-to-one mentoring programs and related services that help youth discover their highest potential and grow to become responsible adults leading productive and rewarding lives.

Description

For more than 40 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh has been recognized as the premier mentoring organization in the region. Since 1965, we have matched more than 13,000 children with responsible, caring adult mentors. Preventative in nature, our program unites the agency staff, volunteer mentors, and parents/guardians who work together to deter the occurrence of problematic behaviors in children before they are able to take root. Through role modeling, guidance and friendship, our volunteers fill a void for children who are critically in need of stable and supportive bonds with caring adults.
