Igniting Potential Through Mentorship. Matching professionally screened adult volunteer mentors (Bigs) and kids (Littles) to defend, ignite, and empower their potential. Mentoring improves the futures of mentees through better grades, achievement of higher levels of education, and improved relationships. 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, your donation will empower the next generation.
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.

Nationwide, more than 70% of children waiting for a Big are boys, but only 3 out of every 10 inquiries to volunteer come from men. Research shows that having the positive influence of a mentor makes a real difference in a kid’s life.
