Community-Based Mentoring Program
For the community-based program, Mentors are matched with a Little Brother or Sister in their local community and are asked to commit to a minimum of 2-3 visits per month for at least one year. A Match Support Specialist contacts the mentor and the parent/child once a month for the first year to see how the match is progressing. Visits can include activities such as bike riding, seeing a movie, baking, gardening, and more. Mentors for this program must be at least 20 years of age and be a resident of Lancaster County for at least 6 months.
School-Based Mentoring Program
For the school-based program, Mentors are matched with a Little Brother or Sister from a local school district and are asked to commit to visiting one day per week during the school year. Visits are held at the school or at a local youth center and are supervised by agency staff. Mentors must be a high school student in grade 10-12 or a college student currently enrolled in a local college or trade school. Visits include such activities as homework help, crafts, board games, sports, and more.
