Mentoring takes place each week during the school year through online communication on our proprietary platform complemented with pre-scheduled in-person events every 4 to 6 weeks. A Big meets with a Little times a month throughout the school year during a non-core class, extended lunch break or after school.

Bigs and Littles work on homework together, play games, throw a ball around, or simply share stories with one another. Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring can take place in a variety of forms and targeted populations to meet their unique needs. More than five million children across the U. In many religious traditions, helping others in your community is embedded within the religious culture, often seen as a way of living out religious beliefs.

When local high schools are positioned near an elementary school, it presents a unique school-based opportunity for high school juniors and seniors to serve as volunteer mentors to elementary students. High School Bigs meet collectively and are paired one-to-one with a Little.
Group meetings are facilitated by our staff who provide structured activities, encourage reading together, and supervise the match relationships. Being a mentor is not reserved for only young adults, but for the young at heart. Generations partners with these mentor-rich communities to encourage seniors to volunteer with children needing a mentor.

Hunting, fishing, shooting sports, water sports, hiking, camping, and bird-watching are just a few of the options that let the Little enjoy the wonders of the great outdoors. We recognize children with a parent in the military face unique challenges due to the stresses of military life.
Military Mentoring provides services to children of those who have faithfully served our country — active duty military personnel, veterans, reservists, National Guard and those who are wounded or lost their lives — by selectively pairing them with a volunteer mentor that has a unique understanding of the lifestyle of our armed service families.
Mentoring can be better, together. By becoming a Big Couple or Big Family, you can impact the life of a child in need alongside your significant other in a long-term relationship of at least two years or even with your entire family. It is a great way to spend time together while also positively impacting the life of a child.
Bigs in Blue SM is a national initiative aiming to connect our youth with local police in order to build strong, trusting, and lasting relationships that have the power to strengthen entire communities. More than two-thirds of children waiting for a mentor are boys requesting a positive, caring male mentor. Through intentional campaigns and partnerships, the Real Men Mentor campaign meets men where they are in order to encourage them to be a male mentor that a boy can turn to and emulate as they grow up.
One in three children will grow up without a mentor. Girls are bombarded with unrealistic expectations every day.
