It is a special program that links adults with children who can benefit from enrichment activities to supplement their schoolwork.
Each adult will be matched with a particular child throughout the school year, adding a friendship factor to the educational program. School Mentors will meet with their assigned Little Brother or Sister for one hour a week during school hours at their school. Big Brothers and Sisters staff will provide ongoing training and support and serve as a liaison between mentor and school.
