Big Brothers Big Sisters Mentorship
The mission of Big Brothers and Big Sisters is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
There are three BBBS programs available in the Pioneer Valley. Although BBBS does not offer any specifically arts-based programming, all three of these organizations are able to make mentorship matches taking into account interest in the arts.
How does it work?
If you are a teenager or parent/guardian of a younger child with an interest in the arts, we encourage you to contact these agencies and see if they might be able to make a match with a "big" who shares that artistic interest.
If you are an adult artist who would like to make a difference in a "littles" life, we encourage you to get in touch with your local BBBS chapter. The training and support you will receive as a "big" will continue to serve you as you work to help make our region more resilient.
