Big Brothers Big Sisters Volunteer Mentors

By Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Massachusetts

This is our traditional program where adult mentors are paired with children ages 7-12. Bigs agree to meet Littles for 3 hours, a couple of times a month.

This is an ongoing program.

Schedule is taken into account when matching mentors with mentees. We do expect that mentors commit to a minimum of one year, for 4 hours a month (normed over 2 outings) or more, when matched with a Little.

Ages: Adults.

We attempt to make the best matches possible by aligning geographic location, personal interests, gender, and other factors between Bigs and Littles.
