Community-Based Mentoring Program
Our community-based program matches children with members of the local community. Our Interview & Match Support Specialists pair Bigs and Littles based on a variety of factors, such as interests, family history, location and personalities. After the initial match meeting where the Big and Little meet for the first time, it is up to the match to plan visits or activities approximately three to four times per month. Each visit typically lasts a few hours. Activities should be agreed upon by the Big, Little and parent/guardian. Possible activities for community-based matches could include: Going to the library, going to a local park, attending a sporting event, or grabbing a bite to eat. An assigned Match Support Specialist will check in with both the Big and the parent/guardian of the Little at least once per month to make sure all is well with the match.
