Meet the Volunteers

Becoming a mentor with the Big Brothers Big Sisters In-School Mentoring program is truly gratifying experience, and it's a lot easier than you might think. But, don't take our word for it; hear directly from our members David, MaryAnn and Joel.

Being a Big Brother or Big Sister changed their lives. As each mentor describes, the experience brought joy and
humor to their regular routine and helped each one to become a better person, both personally and professionally.

By just sharing a little time and being yourself, you can make an extraordinary impact on the life of a
young person. And you'll probably find that they'll have a positive influence on your life as well.
Sign up today to start creating your own positive story of mentorship.


As has been proven by previous members of the program, quality time spent with a
mentor helps a child to: gain confidence, acquire new inter-personal skills, develop
an enhanced capacity to care for themselves and others and build self-esteem.

It is not difficult to see that mentorship has lasting benefits for a child. As David,
MaryAnn and Joel are quick to point out, mentorship is an equally rewarding
experience for the mentors, themselves.

While positively influencing the life of a child is reason enough, our mentors
never shy away from telling us that by being a mentor they experience
tremendous gain in their own lives.

Mentors gain a sense of responsibility to their community. They gain a renewed
sense of pride in themselves. They start to see the world through the eyes of a child,
where possibility seems endless, where opportunity is everywhere.

It's only an hour a week. It's close and convenient. It's a small
commitment that makes a big difference. There's never been a better
reason to go back to school.
