Volunteer Opportunities

Be A School Mentor!

Big Brothers Big Sisters is interested in forming a partnership with the Future Teachers Organization, to rally volunteers for our School-Based Mentoring Program.  The program is currently offered to students in Pennsbury, Neshaminy, Morrisville, Centennial, Bensalem and Central Bucks School District. 

The school-based mentoring program of Big Brothers Big Sisters provides students who are in need of extra support, the opportunity to meet with a caring adult 1 hour every other week.  Mentoring takes place at partnering schools during school hours. We are in dire need for both male and female volunteers, all throughout Bucks County.  Each volunteer will be screened and trained, then matched with a child who is at-risk of academic and/or social difficulty. The purpose of the program is to help students make a successful, healthy transition into adulthood so they may become responsible adults and members of society.  Not only does the child benefit from the relationship, the mentor and the corporation-at-large will see and feel the lasting effects that a solid and healthy friendship can foster.

Mentoring opportunities are available for those community members, who may have a desire to make a difference in the life of an elementary or middle school student.  The opportunity will also help adults in the education field to get a foot in the door and gain hands-on experience. Contrary to popular belief, no experience is necessary to enjoy a rewarding one-on-one relationship with a child.  Mentors are everyday people who like working with children and young adults with whom they can enjoy sharing ideas and talents.  Being a good listener and having a sense of humor are the key ingredients for creating magic in a young personís life. 

Friendships grow from shared experiences, quiet conversations and a commitment to meeting regularly.  Playing a game, sharing a snack, taking a walk, shooting some hoops, learning a craft are all different ways a caring adult can use their time to create memories in a young personís life. The friendship blossoms in simple ways.

If you are interested in more information on this please contact Kelley Mulvey directly at 215-343-8260 ext.16 or at mulvey@bbbsbc.org.

Thank You!
