Community-Based Mentoring

Community-based mentoring is our traditional program, and the most flexible. One Big and one little plan activities together several times a month on their own schedules.

Role models make an impact

Some activities that matches enjoy are:

Taking a walk in the park

Going to museum

Going to an event hosted by the local BBBS affiliate

Listening to music

Hanging out and talking

Some Bigs meet their Littles on the weekends. Others get together with their Littles on weekday evenings. Each match is unique and develops a schedule that works for them.

National and local studies show that children who have role models are more likely to improve in school and in their relationships with family and friends, and less likely to skip school or use illegal drugs or alcohol. Students who are successful in school are less likely to drop out, abuse drugs or commit crimes.

Matched in the Community-Based program since 2015, Big Brother Bill and Little Brother Cameron are great friends and love spending time outdoors! Their favorite activities include riding bikes, playing football, and hanging out at the park.

Other Ways to Get Involved

Whether you get involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters as a donor, potential Big Brother or Big Sister, partner, advocate, or family member, you have the power to change a child's future for the better.
