Site Based Programs

Our Site Based Programs match volunteer mentors to children in need of a positive role model. Matches meet on-site in a supervised setting and are professionally supported by a program team member throughout the duration of the program. Matches meet regularly, where Bigs provide homework assistance, friendship and model positive behavior. We provide several different Site Based programs to children throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties. These programs include:

Within our College Mentoring and High School Bigs Programs, elementary school students build an ongoing relationship based on one-to-one interactions and occasional group activities. The younger students (mentees) gain confidence, while the older students (mentors) build leadership skills. Young mentors learn that they can make a difference in the life of a child and have a positive impact on their community.

Our Workplace Mentoring Program matches middle school students with employees from a company within the community. This program focuses on career exploration and goal setting in a professional workplace environment. Helping children realize their full potential is the goal of all of our mentoring programs!
