By mentoring a child, you defend their potential. You inspire and empower them to believe in themselves and achieve their biggest possible future.

As a Big in our Community-Based Mentoring program, you and your Little get together for 4 hours each month, with a minimum commitment of 1 year.

You and your Little can participate in activities throughout the community together, such as go for walks, play catch, watch a football game, make dinner...the possibilities are endless. The one thing that doesn't change is that you are building a friendship that will make a difference in your Little's life.

You can also mentor a child with a friend, spouse or family member by being a Big Duo or Family Match.
