Quality to the Core

Big Brothers & Big Sisters
School-Based Mentoring Program
 
 
WHAT IS IT? 
A school mentoring program for students in Kindergarten thru 5th Grade
 
 
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?  
Students who need a positive role model or another adult figure in their life to help them navigate their way through elementary school.
 
 
WHEN DO THEY MEET? 
Students will meet with their Big Brother or Big Sister about 30 minutes each week.  Most "Bigs" (big brother or big sister) come into the school over the student's lunch period or during recess. 
 
 
HOW DO I GET MY CHILD ENROLLED? 
Call or email me (Mrs. Kroeck).  If we feel this is a positive opportunity for your child, I will get you the paperwork as fast as I can!
 
 
IS IT REALLY THAT EASY? 
It is extremely easy to get your child signed up for the program!  The hardest part is waiting for the right match.  This occurs because Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region takes special care in screening all Bigs.  It can further be delayed as we wait for more adults to sign up to be mentors.
