Our Site-Based Mentoring Program has gone VIRTUAL!
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we're offering our site-based mentoring programs in a virtual format this school year. Now more than ever, elementary school students need the support and encouragement of a caring mentor to help them navigate this confusing and stressful time.
We've partnered with 11 elementary schools across Butler County to offer our mentoring program virtually via a secure Zoom connection. Bigs and Littles meet for one hour once a week. For part of the hour, Bigs and Littles meet as a group, participating in fun activities like "Simon Says" or "Show and Tell," facilitated by a Big Brothers Big Sisters coordinator. For the rest of the hour, each Big-Little pair meets individually in their own Zoom "room" to talk, work on the Little's homework, or play a game.
Bigs in our virtual site-based program must be at least 14 years old, have a reliable internet connection, and be able to commit to one hour a week through the academic year.
Available times for our program include:
