Traditional Mentoring

What is the “Traditional Mentoring” Program? 

An adult volunteer mentors a child between the ages of 7 and 16, spending one-on-one time together twice a month. Through activities like playing ball, catching up over lunch and going to the park, life-changing friendships are built. Having the friendship and support of a mentor opens a child’s eyes to new possibilities.

What are the eligibility requirements for being a mentor?

  • Must be age 18 or older
  • Pass a background check
  •  Have a valid CA drivers license
  • Commit to at least one year in the program

What is the Process to become a Big Brother or Sister? 

  • Join us at a Volunteer Information Session;
  • Come in for a interview, so we can answer your questions and get to know you better;
  • Get Matched with a compatible youth ages 7-16;
  • Meet with your Little Brother/Sister twice a month and receive ongoing support and access to exclusive BBBS events and activities!

Who are the “Littles”? 

Little Brothers and Sisters are youth from a variety of backgrounds and circumstances, who are facing one or more socioeconomic risk indicators. All youth in our program want a mentor in their lives.

Every child is born with potential, but they need a positive role model in their lives to help them reach their biggest possible futures. Stand with us to empower and inspire their potential.
