(Strasburg, Ohio) – At the end of the day, it’s really all about starting a friendship, providing guidance and inspiring them to reach their potential.
One of the several programs offered by Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Central Ohio is the School-Based Mentoring Program. BBBS currently partners with eight local school district to offer mentoring opportunities at the schools using adults and high school students as Bigs and elementary or middle school aged children as Littles!
The Newsymom.com video crew had the opportunity to go on location during one of these valuable mentoring experiences!
Although it takes place at schools, our School-Based Mentoring program isn’t limited to the classroom. Of course, some Littles do talk with their Bigs about class, or do homework, or read together, but it’s perfectly fine to shoot hoops in the gym or play on the playground.
At the end of the day, it’s really all about starting a friendship, providing guidance and inspiring them to reach their potential.
