Community Based Mentoring, involves Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers providing children - our "Littles" - individualized time and attention on a regular basis, typically 2-4 times per month. During weekly or bi-weekly outings, filled with conversations and shared activities, they develop a relationship that helps children manage the every day challenges that are part of "growing up." During time spent with their Big, Littles gain new skills, explore new interests and test behaviors that expand their experience base beyond their family or neighborhood.
Over the course of time, children gain confidence in themselves, acquire new skills and competencies, and develop an enhanced capacity to care for others - all tasks that are a part of developing healthy maturity.Volunteers experience a sense of discovery and enjoyment as they see the world of possibility open up through a child's eyes.
