Big Brothers Big Sisters of WNC offers three mentoring programs, each of which provides unique opportunities for your child to engage with their Big Brother or Sister.
There is no cost to participate in any of our programs. Also, common to all of our programs is an extensive enrollment and matching processes that is conducted by our professional and highly experienced staff.
Matches are only made when our staff are confident that the character and interests of the mentee and mentor are going to be complimentary and positive. Our goal is for these relationships to be long-term and so in our effort to only make sustainable and enriching matches, we do often have a waiting list of “Littles” for whom we have not yet found a match.
Once matched, our staff continues to work closely with your child and family to ensure a lasting and safe relationship. This is why our mentoring lasts long and helps kids succeed in and out of school.
