Community Based Programs

Our Community based mentoring program, or traditional match program as it is often called, is what we are  best known for.  It provides children  with an adult volunteer mentor that has been specially matched to the child.

 The Community based program  accepts children between the ages of six and 15.  Children, or LITTLES, involved in this  program are recommended by a parent or guardian.  The children and their family are interviewed  and screened by our trained staff to determine the child’s needs.

Any adult, age 18 or  older, can volunteer to become a BIG Brother or BIG Sister.  They, too, are interviewed, screened and  their backgrounds thoroughly checked.

Our staff takes the  time to get to get to know each child and volunteer determining their likes and  dislikes.  Once all background  information has been gathered, our staff creates the most compatible match for  both the child and adult volunteer.

A mentoring  relationship benefits both the child and the adult volunteer and can be  a wonderfully rewarding experience for both.
