What if...

  • Every girl fulfilled her potential?
  • Every girl was set on the right path?
  • Every girl finished high school, went to college, got a job, and gave back to her community?

wouldn't that be something?

Big Sisters Mentoring Program

The Big Sisters Mentoring program provides girls, ages 7-17, with a role model and a friend with whom to talk to and share the experiences of growing up. Through regular outings, a relationship is developed between the mentor and the Little Sister, that is built on trust and common interests, and is supported by our experienced caseworkers. The result is a life-changing experience for both the volunteer mentor and Little Sister.

The Big Sisters Mentoring program requires one outing per week (2-4 hours) and a minimum 1 year commitment. You must be 19 years or older to apply.

Check out our activity Ideas page! 

The program strives to do the following:

  • provide a role model and friend for girls and young women (ages 7-17);
  • promote the importance of staying in school and healthy relationships with family and peers;
  • instill trust and self-confidence in order to make healthy decisions;
  • encourage leadership skills and independent thinking, and
  • above all, make a difference while having fun.
