Is Mentoring for You?
An Orientation to Mentoring at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Windsor Essex
All children and youth need someone to look up to. More than this, they require someone to provide guidance and advice, to give attention and praise - not to mention someone to have fun with! Children and youth can get this support from parents or caregivers, siblings, teachers, coaches - and also from volunteer Mentors! The children and youth who come to Big Brothers Big Sisters seek an adult role model to talk to, learn from, and share experiences with. There may be dozens, if not hundreds of children and youth in your community right now who would like to welcome a caring role model into their lives. Could you provide this kind of support to a child or youth?
Volunteering with Big Brothers Big Sisters is fun, easy, and benefits both the Mentors and the child or youth they are matched with! But there are also important requirements and responsibilities that come along with Mentoring, so it is not for everyone. The purpose of this orientation is to provide you with the information you need to determine whether Mentoring with Big Brothers Big Sisters is something that is right for you. The orientation also provides guidance on how to proceed if you decide that Mentoring with us is something that you would like to pursue.

Mentoring is about being a friend to a child or youth. You'd be amazed at what a little friendship, attention and gentle guidance can bring to the life of a child!
