A Corporate Partner: In addition to a minimum of 15 employees to volunteer as Bigs, your company is required to provide opportunities for BBBSM to recruit Bigs, meeting space during the visits, breakfast and lunch, and a mentoring program liaison. We also ask that corporate partners sponsor the cost of transportation for students to get to the sites.
A Local High School: BBBSM works with MDCPS high school guidance counselors, teachers, principals, and parents to identify students who could benefit most from a mentor. This can include students at risk of dropping out of school, from single-parent households, and/or in challenging socioeconomic circumstances – all situations beyond the students’ control.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami: BBBSM collaborates with schools and corporate partners to customize the program, ensuring a good fit with the company’s needs. This includes accommodating schedules and ensuring Bigs get as much out of the mentoring relationship as Littles. In fact, studies show that individuals whose employers encourage mentoring are more satisfied with their careers and are more engaged at work. BBBSM applies a proven system to recruit, screen, and match Bigs and Littles and coach mentoring relationships leading up to the Little’s graduation.
