High School Mentoring Program


High School Mentoring

This program allows High School Sophomores, Juniors or Seniors to serve as Bigs to elementary students in a structured, facilitated class twice a month.  The High School Bigs assist their Littles with homework, engage them in leadership and self-improvement activities, address anti-bullying techniques, teach the importance of improving relationships with others, and most importantly help to build the child's self-esteem and confidence.

Requirements for a High School Mentor:  Must be referred by your school counselor or principal, must have parent/guardian approval and signature, must provide a resume and application, must commit to monthly monitoring and activities.
