Hispanic Mentoring Program

Big Brothers Big Sisters provides mentors for school-age youth who are of Hispanic Heritage. Our volunteers are carefully screened with a background check and in-depth interview and referrals, and trained to work with the youth on a one - to - one basis. The mentors generally either are community based or school based. Community Based mentors take the children out into the community to experience festivals, museums, plays, sporting events, or just spend quality time with the mentor in an approved location, and must be at least 18 years of age and have a favorable driving record. School Based mentors meet with the children in the school setting, either during the day at a pre-arranged time, or in an afterschool setting, and must be at least 15 to participate. Volunteers are asked to spend at least an hour per week with a child, for a minimum of one year.
