School-Based Mentor (meets one hour each week)

It may sound obvious, but sometimes the best place to help a child realize their potential is at school. Kids enjoy having their Bigs visit them at school, whether it’s in the classroom or on the playground. And parents know what a positive impact it makes.

Learning About Life
Although it takes place at schools, our school-based mentoring program isn’t limited to the classroom. Of course, some Littles do talk with their Bigs about class, or do homework, or read together, but it’s perfectly fine to shoot hoops in the gym or play on the playground. At the end of the day, it’s really all about starting a friendship, providing guidance and inspiring your Little to reach his or her full potential.

All volunteers must complete the BBBS enrollment process which includes an application, background check, references and an interview.

We currently have mentoring opportunities at Reid Park Academy and Cornelius Elementary School
