Benefits For Bigs

Increased self awareness and personal growth

Mentoring relationships are a shared opportunity for learning and growth. Role modeling for your Little how to achieve success in life can be substantially rewarding.

Enhanced cultural awareness

Gain a better understanding of other cultures and develop a greater appreciation for ethnic, socio-economic status, and ideological diversity.

Increased productivity

Employees who participate in Workplace Mentoring feel more productive, perform better, and have a better attitude at work.

BEnefits For Littles

Educational success

Littles have a better sense of hope for their future and are likely to have better school attendance, improved grades, and increased post high school graduation success.

Reduction and avoidance of risky behavior

When Littles have an extra support person in their corner reminding them how much they matter, they tend to improve their overall behavior, including avoiding violence, alcohol and drugs.

Get along better with family and friends

Littles become more confident, develop increased trust in adults, learn how to make better choices, and improve their social skills.

Little time big impact

You might be wondering, what do mentors do with our kids?

Matches plan outings together in their community or at the BBBS Offices. 

You can chat or play games, go to the park, community events, run errands, go to the library, or work towards a goal together like running a 5k or learning a new skill, go to a sporting event and much more!

We are about sharing time rather than creating time. We can’t wait to hear from you.


Becoming a Big is more important now than ever. Children in your community need Bigs like you to bring support and joy during this time of crisis in children’s health.
