What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Youth Mentoring

Helping children in need reach their potential through professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships with volunteers.

All volunteers who apply to our program are carefully screened. Volunteers have the opportunity to be a part of either the Community-based program where they spend 2 to 4 hours a week with a child, or in the School-based program where they spend 1 hour a week with the a child at their school. Matches can consist of a Couple's Match where a husband and wife are matched together with a Little Brother; Two Bigs and a Little where two siblings or friends are matched with a Little; or the traditional One-to-one match where a Big and Little spend time together just the two of them.

Population(s) Served
Ethnic and racial groups
Non-adult children
At-risk youth
Economically disadvantaged people
Victims and oppressed people
