Community-Based Mentoring Programs
Community-Based mentoring includes our traditional, one-to-one mentoring programs where we match children between the ages of 7 and 16 (our Littles) with a caring adult mentor, aged 21 or older (our Bigs).
All volunteer mentors are extensively interviewed, screened and trained. BBBSLI provides every match with a professional program team member to monitor the relationship and offer guidance during its entirety.
The Big, Little, and his or her parent/guardian make a one-year commitment to the match relationship. Mentors and mentees agree to meet a minimum of twice a month for two to four hours enjoying low to no-cost activities.
