Big Brothers Big Sisters and Plainfield School District 202 are creating an afterschool Site-Based Plus mentoring program. S.O.A.R. (Skills, Opportunities, Academics, Relationships) matches volunteer mentors to children in need of a positive role model. Matches build relationships on-site in a supervised setting and beyond. Mentors will provide positive influence to help youth stay engaged with school while strengthening friendships with peers and mentors. Each match is professionally supported by a program team member throughout the duration of the match and is no cost to the child and their family. Matches meet twice a month at the child’s campus, as well as meeting off-site on their own time.
Mission Statement: Create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships within a trusting, supportive environment that ignites lifelong learning and the promise of the youth.
Requirements to be a mentor:
