Our programs get things startedWe offer three core types of donor-funded programs: Community-Based, School-Based and Faith-Based Mentoring. And no matter when a child enters a program, there’s no limit to where he or she can go.
Choose a Program that fits YOU!
Our mentoring programs are characterized by:
"Bigs" and "Littles" are the heart of our programs.
Our matches enjoy sharing simple, everyday activities with each other: playing a game, attending a ball game, arts and crafts, watching a movie or just hanging out together. What matters to the youth is not the activity, but that they have a caring adult who is interested in their life. Because they have someone to confide in and look up to, they do better in school and at home.
- One-to-one friendship between a caring, adult volunteer and a child.
- Thorough, careful assessment and screening of volunteers, with child safety as our top priority.'
- Thoughtful matching of volunteers and children, based on shared interests and personalities.
- Focused and tracked outcomes that measure match impact.
Every volunteer has the opportunity to select a program that fits his or her schedule and personal preferences. Each program has proven results! We serve the children of Tippecanoe County with two mentoring program options:
