Q1. HOW DOES IT WORK?
To be enrolled in our program all a mentor/parent has to do is call our office and inquire. They will be sent an application or can complete one from our website. Once we have the application, it will be processed and they will be called to set up an initial interview.
Q2. HOW OFTEN DO BIGS AND LITTLES GET TOGETHER?
We require four hours a month which can be broken down many different ways. However, our mentors can always spend more time with their little if they choose to.
Q3. WHAT SUPPORT IS PROVIDED TO OUR MATCH?
Support is offered to all bigs/littles/matches and wait list children on a continuous basis, through communication, trainings, social media and for any needs that may arise.
We like for our matches to turn into lifelong friendships, however, sometimes that doesn’t always work out. If a match doesn’t make it to their one year anniversary we do close their case out and the mentee goes back on to the waiting list to be rematched.
Q10. HOW LONG CAN A MATCH LAST?
A match can last until the mentee turns 18 and ages out of the program. Some of our matches that have aged out of the program go on to have lifelong relationships with their mentors!
