Site-based Mentoring

Who knew lunch breaks could be so fun?Become a school-based mentor, you can increase a child’s self-confidence & attention to schoolwork!

Big Brothers Big Sisters provides Arizona youth facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported, one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better.

What do Site-Based Matches Do?
You and your Little Brother or Little Sister will meet during the school’s lunch/recess time (every other week) to have lunch together, play outside, meet in the library, play games, do homework and talk.

Who are the Littles?
The youth in our program come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, though the majority come from low-income, single parent families or have a parent in prison.

How Will One Hour a Week Make a Difference?
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
Learn how you can get involved & help to change a life today!
