Our Site-Based mentoring programs match volunteer mentors to children in need of a positive role model. Matches take place in a supervised setting and are professionally supported by a program team member throughout the duration of the match. 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.
Site-Based Mentoring Programs Offered:
- High School Bigs Mentoring
- College Mentoring Programs
- Workplace Mentoring
Within our College Mentoring and High School Bigs program, 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!
