Big Brothers Big Sisters of Brandon Mentoring Programs

Mentoring Programs

Have you been thinking that mentoring with Big Brothers Big Sisters only includes one-to-one, long-term matches? Think again!

Big Brothers Big Sisters offers a wide range of mentoring opportunities to meet the varied needs of volunteers, children and families.

Serving as role models, our mentors teach by example the importance of giving and giving back, of staying in school, and for having respect for family, peers and community.

Each time we pair a child with a mentor or introduce a group of students to a group program, we start something.

We as individuals can make than in helping our nation’s children realize – and share – their full potential.

Big Brothers Mentoring

The Big Brothers Mentoring program provides boys and young men with a role model and a friend to talk to and share the experiences of growing up with. Through regular outings, a relationship is developed between the mentor and the mentee, that is built on trust and common interests, and is supported by our experienced case-workers. The result is a life-changing experience for both the mentor and the mentee.

The In School Mentoring program provides girls and boys with a role model and a friend to talk to and share the experiences of growing up with, within school grounds. For one hour a week, mentors meet with their mentee and engage in activities such as board games, crafts or just hang out in the playground.

Teen Mentoring

Teen Mentoring is for caring and responsible teen volunteers in grades 11 & 12 who wishes to provide encouragement and friendship to a child. Besides playing with play-doh, painting and having fun, you will be a role model to one student. Through friendship, guidance and sharing, you will help build a child's self-esteem.
