Thank you for your interest in enrolling your child to become a CBSBB youth. We hope this will be the beginning of a long relationship, not only with a mentor, but also with our organization.
At Catholic Big Sisters and Big Brothers, we believe mentoring should be both fun and transformative. With over 110 years of experience, CBSBB has developed a unique model of mentoring to ensure quality match relationships between youth and adult mentors. Our unique model recognizes that mentoring involves more than a Little (youth) and a Big (adult mentor): the Little’s family and our agency are just as important in establishing a successful relationship between your child and their new adult friend. We promote open communication and collaboration among all involved so that we can best support the match and, ultimately, your child to achieve his or her full potential.
After completing the application process, it can take several months for your child to be matched with a mentor. We like to carefully review our volunteers to ensure that we make the best possible match. Wait times vary and can be longer for boys.
If you have additional questions that are not covered here, please do not hesitate to contact us at 212-475-3291 ext. 501 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to working with you!
