Time Commitment:

One hour, every other week

Location:

At the designated school or workplace

The Bigs:

Working professionals, college students and other adults who have been screened by BBBSMA and are dedicated to igniting our Littles' potential

BEYOND SCHOOL WALLS:

One-to-one corporate-school partnership. Bigs and Littles visit twice per month on set schedule and curriculum at Big's workplace.

 

SCHOOL-BASED:

Bigs from partner corporations and community members mentor during the school day. Bigs and Littles visit twice per month on their own schedule at the Little's school.

Bigs' screening includes: 3 reference checks, in-person interview, nationwide criminal background check, staff assessment, mentor safety training

Bigs' requirements: consent to a criminal background check, be able to commit to at least three semesters, be 18 and older, have access to reliable transportation, and have a valid I.D.
