Description & Services
Cross Reference Community Based 1 to 1 mentoring for children and youth (Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Big Couples)
Description of service(s) Provides young people with a volunteer "Big" who serves as a role model, mentor, and a friend to talk to and share the experiences of growing up with. Through regular outings, a relationship is developed between the big and little, 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 Big Brothers/Big Sisters Mentoring program usually requires two regularly scheduled outings a month of several hours each and minimum of 1 year commitment. The program strives to do the following: 
- provide a role model and a friend for children and youth 
- promote the importance of staying in school and healthy relationships with family and peers. 
- instill trust and self-confidence in order to make healthy decisions. 
- encourage leadership skills and independent thinking. 
- and above all, make a difference while having fun.
