COMMUNITY BASED MENTORING
Traditional mentoring that takes place between a community Big and Little. Spend time together baking cookies, playing catch, or visiting local events and sites.  You might just find that you've changed a life- theirs and yours. 

SITE BASED
MENTORING

BBBS of Beaver County facilitates relationships between high school students and kids in their elementary schools. Meeting during or at the end of the school day, these mentoring relationships allow students to benefit from relationships close in both proximity and connection.

BEYOND SCHOOL WALLS
Introduces high school students to jobs earlier in their school years, allowing them to experience what it means to work for a business or agency, informing them of the education requirements needed to achieve professional success, and building a strong and supporting mentoring relationship with a business leader.
