BBBS Community-Based Mentoring Program

By Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Massachusetts

This is our traditional program where adult mentors are paired with children ages 7-12, and agree to see each other for 3 hours, a couple of times a month in the Little's community.

A Little and his Big share some laughter on a park bench.
This is an ongoing program.

Schedule is taken into account when matching mentors with mentees.

Ages: 7 to 12.

Grades 2nd grade through 6th grade.

Additional information

Each match is hand-selected by our team based on shared interests, geography and personality. Bigs and Littles plan their own outings filled with things they enjoy doing, like sports, going to the beach or listening to music.
