Be a Big Sister in Your Community

For women 20 and older: This one-to-one mentoring program matches girls (ages 7-15) with women who live in or around their community.  Big Sisters spend time with Little Sisters weekly for the first three months and a minimum of twice per month thereafter for at least 12 months.

Be a Big Sister at a local elementary school!

For women 18 and older: This one-to-one mentoring program matches girls in elementary school with women mentors.  Matches meet once a week at the Little Sister’s school or at an after-school site.  Weekly visits are 45 minutes to an hour for one academic school year.

School-Based mentors are not teachers or tutors; they are caring and consistent friends.  They do arts and crafts, shoot hoops in the gym, read books, or simply share stories over lunch.  Each match independently determines how best to spend their time together, and Big Sister staff are always available to provide activity ideas and support.

We currently have School-Based sites at the Dever, Holland, and Russell Elementary Schools in Dorchester!
