School-Based Mentoring matches 3rd 4th and 5th grade students with high school mentors, one-on-one, who meet as a group once a week after school at Wasson Elementary. A volunteer “Big Buddy” provides help with homework, plays social skill games, and most importantly offers an additional friendship to his or her “Little Buddy”. Big Brothers Big Sisters, a premier mentoring program, knows the power of mentoring! Mentoring makes a positive difference in the life of a child by developing the support youth need in meeting the social, emotional, and academic challenges of childhood and adolescence.
