Mentor Support

As a volunteer mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters, you have made a commitment to develop a trusting, supportive friendship with a child or youth. Mentoring with Big Brothers Big Sisters provides a unique opportunity to make a positive difference in the life of a child or youth. It also comes with important responsibilities with regard to their safety and welfare.

These resources are intended to complement the training and support you receive from program staff at your local agency. They provide guidance, information and tips to help ensure the safety and well-being of your Little Brother or Little Sister and contribute toward a healthy, committed and meaningful friendship for both you and your mentee. We encourage you to talk with your program staff about the issues and ideas raised in these resources.
