Established in 1995, our site based mentoring programs offer one-to-one mentoring at a specific meeting place, such as school or workplace. The mentor visits the youth during an approved period of the day. Our Site Based program includes facilitated one-to-one mentoring between an adult and a student, or a high school student and an elementary or middle school student. BBBS staff work with a staff member at the location and the volunteer to provide support for the ongoing relationship
Site Based Mentoring Bigs must be at least 18 years old, mature, stable and responsible, as determined by the Big Brothers Big Sisters professional staff assessment. Mentors in this program must agree to only meet with their Little at the approved mentoring location.
Volunteers are asked to commit at least two-to-four hours each month for at least one year.
Youth ages 7 to 12 are eligible to be enrolled in a Site Based Program if they live in a community where a Site Based Program is provided.
