Together, We are Defenders of Potential

Studies show that children who have role models are more likely to improve in school and in their relationships with family and friends, and less likely to skip school or use illegal drugs or alcohol. Students who are successful in school are less likely to drop out, abuse drugs, or commit crimes. Bigs in Blue is one of our community-based mentoring programs that matches a law enforcement officer with one of our waiting Littles.

30 Mentors in 30 Days!
June 18 through July 18, 2019 – We recently launched a 30 Mentors in 30 Days recruitment campaign. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Flint & Genesee County recognizes that Bigs are bigger together. Our goal is to identify a minimum of 30 volunteer mentors between June 18, 2019-July 18, 2019.

STEP 1
Schedule your volunteer orientation and interview with our professional staff. The orientation will take about 30-45 minutes. If you decide that this is a good volunteer fit, you may continue with the in-person interview. This will take approximately an additional 45 minutes.

STEP 2
Complete the enrollment paperwork. This includes an application, criminal background check release and copies of driver’s license or state issued identification card and proof of auto insurance.

STEP 3
Complete volunteer training. We train our volunteers even before they are matched to ensure healthy relationship development. On-going volunteer training is available throughout the match’s life-cycle. Volunteer training’s are available on-line or in-person.

Please contact the office for more information about how you can assist us in achieving our goal of 30 Mentors in 30 Days at 810-235-0617 or email us at [email protected].
