VIRTUAL: BBBS Mentor Volunteering
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. Matches and meetings will happen virtually.
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 3 hours a month of more, when matched with a Little.
Ages: Young Adult to Senior Adult.
We attempt to make the best matches possible by aligning geographic location, personal interests, gender, and other factors between Bigs and Littles.
- Sign-up is ongoing
The program serves people at their homes or wherever it is needed or online.
- Only virtual (online or over the phone).
During COVID-19 outbreak, Bigs and Littles will meet virtually or over the phone if necessary. At some point during the year, when we believe in-person meetings are safe again, we may consider resuming the practice of Bigs meeting with Littles whenever possible.
Each match is hand-selected by our team based on shared interests, geography and personality. Bigs and Littles may resume in-person meetings when regular programming begins after the COVID-19 outbreak. At this time, all matches and meetings will be virtual/remote.
