High school students at Olympia High School communicate with their mentors through online portals for about 30 minutes a week. Then, Bigs and Littles meet up once a month at their high school during the school year and follow activities led by professional staff. The mission of MentorU is to help high school students develop personal, academic, and career skills.
Being a Big is all about sharing enjoyable experiences with a child in need. It doesn’t take a lot of time or money or any special skills. All you need is a willingness to be a friend to a child who needs a positive role model. Bigs consistently tell us that they “get back more than they give,” and having a Big changes a child’s life for the better, forever! Click here to read more about becoming a Big.
Being a Little is all about wanting a role model and someone to spend time with. Our program is free to all participants and we carefully screen volunteers for safety and proper expectations. Click here to read more about enrolling a child in the program.
