Role models make an impact
Studies show that children who have role models are more likely to improve in school and in their relationships with family and friends, and less likely to skip school or use illegal drugs or alcohol. Students who are successful in school are less likely to drop out, abuse drugs, or commit crimes.
COMMUNITY BASED MENTORING
About twice a month, community-based matches may spend time in the park, or by playing or other fun activities.
SCHOOL BASED MENTORING
Once a week, school-based matches can meet in the lunchroom, on the playground or utilize other resources on the school's campus to spend time together.
SPORTS BUDDIES MENTORING
About once a month, Sports Buddies will meet at an agency-facilitated activity focused on watching sports or playing sports together.
Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Boys & Girls Clubs have partnered to provide one-to-one mentoring to youth on-site at one of the Clubs.
