Resources for Mentors
We know that kids who have a Big do better in school, are less likely to use drugs and alcohol and have more positive relationships. To ensure the best outcomes for our Littles, our job is to provide ongoing supervision and support.
In addition to the Big Brothers Big Sisters training (online and in-person) that our mentors already have participated in, we recommend the following resources.
