Community-Based Mentoring

Our volunteer Bigs meet with their Littles on a flexible schedule, doing activities in the community. They may go to the movies, a sporting event, or spend time baking at home. Matches are encouraged to do activities that both Big and Little enjoy. In Community-Based matches all plans are made directly between the volunteer and parents. There is no set day/time for activities.

Site-Based Mentoring

Bigs and Littles meet on a college campus two Saturdays a month during the school year. Littles are bused to campus to spend the afternoon with their Bigs. Group activities are planned and lunch is provided. Matches also have free time to choose their own activities on campus. The group also goes on field trips to museums, bowling, or apple picking several times a year.  This program does not meet in the summer or when the college students are on break. This program is available at:

  • Union College
  • SUNY Albany
  • College of Saint Rose
  • Skidmore College
  • RPI
