Big Brother Big Sister of Monmouth & Middlesex Counties
BBBS is committed to providing children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
This is our traditional mentoring program that connects children ages 6-15 with committed volunteers that are 19 years of age or older. “Bigs” and “Littles” spend quality 1-to-1 time out in the community 4-6 hours a month. Together they engage in fun, low-cost, friendship-building activities. The goal of the mentoring relationship is to provide positive guidance and support to enhance the child’s ability to become a confident, competent, and caring adult. A minimum of a one year commitment is required for the program with the hope that the friendship will last a lifetime!
Our proactive approach to reaching more children in a group mentoring setting is developed through partnerships with school districts. These programs offer a select number of mentors the opportunity to be a role model and friend to a student. The mentoring sessions take place at the school where BBBS staff provides and closely supervises activities that the matches do together.
The commitment for School Based Bigs and Littles is one academic year, with weekly or bi-weekly sessions that are planned and facilitated by BBBS staff and school liaisons.
