Description

Community-Based mentoring includes our traditional, one-to-one mentoring programs where we match children between the ages of 7 and 16 (our Littles) with a caring adult mentor, aged 21 or older (our Bigs). Where our Site-Based mentoring programs match volunteer mentors to children in a supervised setting and are professionally supported by a program team member throughout the duration of the program. Matches meet regularly, where Bigs provide homework assistance, friendship and model positive behavior.
