YOUR QUESTIONS, ANSWERED
Matches who have participated in Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Community Mentoring, Workplace Mentoring and College Bigs programs are eligible to join the BBBS Alumni Association once the mentee graduates high school or turns 18 years old.
Big Brothers Big Sisters also offers continued 1:1 individualized match support for mentees ages 18-24 who want additional accountability and connection with our agency. 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 our 18+ Program, please contact your Match Support/Program Specialist to receive your unique form links.
While your match profile may no longer be active in our system, your connection is forever! 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!
