Program Information

This is the core BBBS program that matches children ages 6-13 from primarily single-parent homes with thoroughly screened, responsible, caring adult volunteer mentors. The primary goal of this program is relationship development that will lead children that will have improved self-confidence, raised academic achievement and strengthened community and family relationships. 

 

Job Description

We offer site-based mentoring which means the volunteer would mentor the child at their school one day a week. We also offer community-based mentoring which means the volunteer would take the child into the community and expose them to things they may not otherwise be exposed to. We offer additional site-based mentoring for youth in our local youth detention centers. 

 

Requirements

  • Application
  • Interview
  • Background check 
  • Reference checks 
  • Home assessment (if the child will be visiting your home)
  • Background check
  • Attend orientation 

Hours

Site-based mentoring would be one day a week at the school during school hours. Community-based mentoring would be based upon the volunteer and child's schedule.
