Enroll a Child

For over 100 years, we have been matching children with adult mentors who help children to realize and reach their potential. This includes providing positive social and emotional support, in order to best aid the children’s successful and happy development.

To enroll, our mentees must be between 7 and 17 years old.  Each match will also be assigned a “Mentor Manager” to provide the volunteer ("Big"), your child ("Little"), and you, advisement and encouragement throughout our program.
 

Give your child the gift of a mentor — and a new friend.

How the Matching Process Works

Our unique matching process is designed to identify a mentor who is the best fit for your child based on specific personal interests of both the Big and the Little. Often, the match will take a bit of time to determine. We are confident that the result is worth the wait.

Children’s Safety is Our Priority

Our mentors go through an in-depth, national background check, interview, and screening process.  Once accepted, they go through an orientation and training process, so they may offer the best support possible to your child.

No Cost to Join

There is no cost to you to have your child join our program. We do emphasize and require that your child be committed and attend scheduled visits with his or her Big for 4 hours per month.
