Become a BIG

Thank you so much for your interest in becoming a Big in our program. The first step to getting involved in is to attend “Intro to Mentoring”. The Intro to Mentoring serves as both an orientation to our program and a training session. It is after this session that you will leave informed to make a decision for yourself if this opportunity sounds like a good fit for you.

The  Intro to Mentoring session focuses as an overview of the program, the different opportunities to get involved in our agency  and  prepares you for what a mentor is, what a mentor does, and how to build a good mentoring relationship. It will help you become aware of personal expectations while exploring the roles and responsibilities of a mentor, the match life cycle and steps to successful volunteering.

Volunteers must attend this mandatory training before beginning the process. An application will be given out at the end of this orientation. We ask that you take what you have learned in session and decide if this is the right time to for you to begin a life changing journey. Return the application at your convenience when you are ready to begin. Once we receive the application, you will be contacted to begin the enrollment process.

So are you ready to take the next step?
