School-Based Mentor (meets weekly during lunch)

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.

It’s Teacher-Approved
Some of the biggest supporters of our school-based mentoring program are actually teachers. They see students come back from their time with their Bigs filled with confidence, ready to learn, and eager to succeed.

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.

Making a Difference in Schools: The Big Brothers Big Sisters School-Based Mentoring Impact Study found that within a one-year period, school-based mentoring made a real difference in the lives of our nation’s at-risk school children.
