Community Based One-to-One Mentoring

platThe Community Based One-to-One Mentoring program is a casework-managed program, designed to establish the child in a professionally-created and supported relationship with a caring adult. This relationship, when properly structured and monitored by a professional Case Manager, will increase the child’s self-worth, thereby improving personal, social, and academic performance. The services delivered by the program can be divided into three general areas: assessment, matching, and match support. The main component of each of these areas is the time and attention each area receives from the BBBSKC staff. This attention allows the volunteer, or “Big”, to focus on developing a strong bond with their “Little”, while a BBBSKC’s staff member monitors the relationship, provides guidance and resources to address any challenges that may arise.

BBBSKC’s Adults Committed to Educating our Students (ACES)
is the agency's one-to-one mentoring program for high school students in the
Kansas City community. This program seeks to provide the needed guidance and
resources to students in pursuit of post-secondary education. ACES was formed
in 2014 when the agency made the decision to expand and restructure the
Kauffman Scholar's program. Through BBBSKC's Kauffman Scholars program, only
students enrolled in Kauffman Scholars were eligible, whereas in ACES, any
student starting in the eighth grade is eligible for the program. This
case-work managed program is designed to establish a teenager in a
professionally created and supported relationship with a caring adult
volunteer. Students enrolled in ACES are matched with educated and experienced
professionals, many of whom are emerging leaders within their companies. Bigs
will help their Littles by focusing on education and post education planning,
which could include: exploring majors and career aspirations, attending college
visits and helping to prepare for standardized tests for college emission. The
overall goal of this program is to provide additional support and resources to
help youth who want to continue their education after high school.
