Mission Statement

Our VISION is that all youth achieve their full potential. Our MISSION is to create and support one to one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

Description

We match children ages 5-15 with adult mentors in our Community Based program who spend 4 to 10 hours a month together doing fun activities that both the volunteer and child agree upon and enjoy! In our school based programs, volunteers meet the child at their school once a week to help with homework, play a game, be a friend or just talk. Our eMentoring platform connects Bigs with their Little virtually.
