Community-Based Mentoring

A Few Hours Each Month Can Make a BIG Difference

Community-Based Mentoring is the traditional Big Brothers Big Sisters relationship. It's all about one-on-one time spent with the volunteer and the young person doing things they enjoy — a few hours a couple times a month filled with shared interests and activities like:
  • Shooting hoops
  • Playing a board game
  • Sharing a pizza
  • Taking a walk in the park
  • Or just hanging out and talking.
The schedule can be flexible to meet the needs of mentors and young people in different kinds of situations. Some Bigs meet their Littles on the weekend or in the evening. Others get together with their Littles after school. There's almost no one so busy that they can't find a way to fit in a few hours a month. Especially when they learn what a difference mentoring makes.

National and state statistics show that children who are mentored are more likely to improve in school and in their relationships with family and peers, and less likely to skip school or use illegal drugs or alcohol. Students who are successful in school are less likely to drop out, become pregnant, abuse drugs or become involved in criminal activity. The success of children who are mentored is apparent in the following statistics. In a nationwide study, Little Brothers and Little Sisters were:

  • 52% less likely to skip school
  • 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
  • More likely to get along with their families and peers
