Community-Based BBBS


Community-based mentoring is the traditional Big Brothers Big Sisters relationship. It's all about one-on-one time spent with the volunteer and the young person.  They meet a few hours a couple times a month.  The time they spend together is filled with activities and shared interests like:
-shooting hoops
-playing a board game
-sharing a pizza
-taking a walk in the park
-just hanging out and talking

The schedule can be flexible to meet the needs of mentors and young people in different kinds of situations. Some Bigs meet their Littles on the weekend or in the evening. Others get together with their Littles after school. There's almost no one so busy that they can't find a way to fit in a few hours a month.
