Site Based mentoring is very similar to our School Based mentoring program. It also was developed to help improve the self-esteem, attitudes, attendance and achievement of children ages 6-14. Volunteers are matched in a one-to-one relationship with a child who has been referred by their teacher, guidance counselor or parent who could benefit from a mentoring relationship based on academic or social needs.
Both mentor and child make a year long commitment to the program and agree to meet at least 1 hour every week at the Boys and Girls Club to help provide extra attention and support in a safe and structured environment. The meeting times may occur before or after school and the match can use all of the resources at the Boys and Girls Club.
