Virtual Friends eMentoring
Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Shoals
Due to the restrictions caused by COVID-19 on in person one to one meetings, we are now offering virtual eMentoring for children aged 5 to 15. Volunteers will meet with their mentee via virtual platforms once every other week for 30 minutes to 1 hour. On the alternate week, they will communicate via a special messaging platform for Big Brothers Big Sisters participants. Mentoring sessions can consist of help with school work, building self esteem, character building, life coaching or just talking and being a friend. A variety of resources will be provided.

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.
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.
