Is Mentoring For You?
IS MENTORING FOR YOU?
All children and youth need someone to look up to; someone to provide guidance and advice, to give attention and praise, and 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 of Greater Sudbury seek an adult role model to talk to, learn from, and share experiences with. There are hundreds of children and youth in Greater Sudbury 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 of Greater Sudbury is fun, easy, and benefits both the mentors and the child or youth they are matched with! There are important requirements and responsibilities that come along with mentoring, so the purpose of this orientation is to provide you with the information you need to determine whether mentoring is right for you.
