MENTORING PROGRAMAS

BBBS picture
1:1 and 2:1 Mentoring (Community-Based)

Bigs (adults) spend a minimum of 6 hours a month in direct interaction/communication with their Littles pursuing everyday activities that they need or enjoy such as shopping, cooking and baking, watching a movie, visiting parks or museums, helping with homework, attending sporting events, having phone and zoom conversations and more.

2:1 mentoring involves a couple from the same household serving as Bigs to a Little. We accept applications for children between the ages of 8 and 15 who reside in Onondaga County. Littles that have been actively matched within this age range may continue with their match until aging out at 19.
