Help Start Something BIG through the power of mentoring! Being a mentor can help a child experience other possibilities which can result in setting higher goals, achieving higher levels of education, and being more successful in life.

Site-Based Mentoring : The child and the volunteer meet at a set date and time each week at the child's school or at the Boys & Girls Club (late afternoon or early evening) and participate in activities at that site (i.e. making crafts, playing a board game, playing catch, etc.).

Community-Based Mentoring : The child and the volunteer arrange their meetings based upon when it fits into their schedules and participate in activities in the community (i.e. going out to dinner, playing in the park, going for a walk, flying a kite, etc.).

-Increased self-confidence
