Mentoring Changes Lives

Redefining what is possible for children in Central Oregon:  Matching professionally screened adult mentors (Bigs) and kids (Littles) to help shape a child’s future. 

Why Mentoring?

A mentor assures young people that someone cares, will be there through challenges, and help them see the strength in themselves. Mentoring has been shown to improve the futures of mentees through better grades, achievement of higher levels of education, and improved relationships. Essentially, young people with a mentor grow personally and have better social and economic opportunity than those who do not. Yet many kids in Central Oregon never have this opportunity.

For those who are mentoring, the experience not only offers the opportunity to have fun in our community and see the world through a youth's perspective, but builds leadership and management skills. It is an empowering way to touch the future.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Oregon serves the Bend, Redmond, and Madras areas. We are a part of the nation’s largest mentoring network solely supported by donors and volunteers. Be someone who matters to someone who matters.  Please join us to make a difference in a child’s life.
