Big Brothers is the original "Mentoring Program". An adult male is "matched" with a boy for a fun, goal-oriented, friendship-based relationship. Volunteer commitments vary widely. We match based on the circumstances of the volunteer, the desires of both parties, location and personalities. In general, we are hoping for "regular, meaningful contact" between an adult and a child.
Studies have conclusively shown that the time a mentor spends with a child has a significant, long-lasting effect on who that child will become. In many cases, it makes ALL the difference.
