Community Based Mentoring: Volunteers are enrolled and matched with a child (ages 9 to 12) and choose enjoyable and enriching activities to spend time doing, based upon their mutual interests. Volunteers commit to a minimum of one year, spending time with the same child two to four times each month, being a positive influence and example. Big Brothers Big Sisters staff members support the volunteer mentors and their match relationship, providing support, assistance, advice, and counsel.
