Not only can a mentor have a profound impact on a child’s growth and success, but the effect on mentors themselves can also be significant. Our volunteers join a valued community, meet interesting new people, and describe experiencing joy and pride in their mentoring role. Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles has been matching Jewish mentors ("Bigs"), ages 21 and up, with Jewish mentees ("Littles"), ages 6-17, for over 100 years. Many of our Big/Little matches report that their relationships with one another have been deeply impactful, and even life-changing for them both. Whether a match lasts a year or a lifetime, mentoring makes a Big difference.
