About

Every volunteer mentor (or Big) is matched one-to-one with a 6-17 year old child (or Little) in the community. Matches get together 8-12 hours a month and spend time doing things they both enjoy. It's up to each match to decide when to get together and what they want to do. Some matches enjoy riding bikes, hiking, collecting seashells at the beach, baking cookies, running in marathons, playing video games, skateboarding, knitting and much more. Every match is supported by a Match Support Specialist to help ensure that relationships are healthy and beneficial to youth and provide the mentor with a rewarding experience. They can also provide ideas for activities, conflict resolution, and general support for the matches.
