Do I Have Time to Be a Mentor?
The fundamental responsibility of a mentor is a commitment to serve as a volunteer consistently for 1-15 hours per month, with the same youth, for a full year or school-year (usually meeting once per week). The goal of the mentoring relationship is that you and your youth pair will remain friends long beyond the scope of the BBBS program.
How Do I Get Started?
Schedule an information session – these last about 45 minutes and include an overview of our programs, the communities BBBS serves, mentor responsibilities, the application process, as well as answers to your questions and concerns. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, we’ll give you an application packet and schedule you for a mentor training.
- We can schedule a time to meet with you, your staff, co-workers, supporters, and/or volunteers if you’d like to learn more about becoming a mentor.
- We will explain what it means to be a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lane County. We understand that mentors don’t have to change their lives to positively impact the lives of youth/teens. Come as you are and help us improve the lives of young people in our community!
- We will be here to help from start to finish – supporting our volunteers through your mentoring journey is our privilege.
