YOUR QUESTIONS, ANSWERED
Matches who have participated in Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Community Mentoring, Workplace Mentoring and College Bigs programs are eligible to enroll in the BBBS Alumni Association once the mentee graduates high school or turns 18 years old. An annual open enrollment period is held April 1 – June for graduating seniors and their mentors.
To join this adult chapter of our mentoring program, both mentee and mentor must enroll in the program by completing an online form. If your match is interested in joining the BBBS Alumni Association, please contact your Match Support/Program Specialist to receive your unique form links.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is honored to continue walking alongside mentors and mentees through the age of 24 as they transform their lives and communities through the power of mentorship. As mentees set out on their post-graduation pathway, your Match Support Specialist will be in regular contact throughout the year to provide guidance, assistance and support. You will also receive personalized support from a College & Career Specialist as needed.
In addition to professional match support, alumni also have access to BBBS-exclusive college and career events, networking opportunities and resources like financial aid.
As two busy adults, you will decide together how often you want to connect. While balancing school, work and relationships can be challenging, consistent support and guidance from a trusted mentor is critical during this period of a young adult’s life. We recommend that you check in with each other on a regular basis via text, phone or video call and plan quarterly meetups around your schedules.
At the end of the day, even a quick motivational text from a good friend during finals or job hunting can go a long way!
