High School Bigs Mentoring Program


High School Bigs Mentoring (HSBM) Program allows high school students to meet the growing mentoring needs of our community. The program is provided in partnership with a local school district and matches high school students (Bigs) with younger students (Littles). HSBM is a Site Based Mentoring program model, where mentoring matches meet at a set time and location with the support of a Site Coordinator.

The goal of HSBM is to provide elementary/intermediate and high school students with a healthy friendship within their school community and an opportunity to grow and learn from one another. The HSBM model is unique because there are positive measurable benefits for both the high school student volunteering as a the Big and for the Little.

The HSBM Program is currently provided in partnership with the Lewiston-Porter, Cleveland Hill, Maryvale and Niagara Falls City School Districts. 

For more information about this program, please contact Maryam Busshart, Director of Programs at 873-5833 ext. 223.
