Spend your lunch hour with a child who needs an extra friend.
Big Brothers Big Sisters Southeastern Pennsylvania (BBBS SEPA) has partnered with Bentley Systems, located at 685 Stockton Drive here in Eagleview, for several years to match volunteer “Bigs” with “Littles” from the local community in a workplace mentoring program. Bigs and Littles meet at Bentley Systems offices every other Tuesday during lunch time throughout the school year. BBBS SEPA has even more kids this year who would like to be involved in the program, so they're looking for a few good Bigs who can join the Bentley Systems Beyond School Walls program – can you help?
With BBBS SEPA’s mentoring program, you don’t need to change your life, or your schedule, to impact the life of a child who needs a role model.
As a mentor, or “Big Brother” or “Big Sister,” you will meet with a student at Bentley’s office during your work day, once every other week, for an hour. Play games, enjoy lunch together, or just talk. Your nine month commitment and bi-weekly companionship will make a BIG impact! Students in BBBS Beyond School Walls Mentoring Programs feel more competent academically, are less likes to skip school and feel that they would attend and finish college - that’s a lot of impact for a few hours a month!
BBBS SEPA provides each “Big” with a Program Coordinator who is always there to answer any questions along the way.
Becoming a Big Brother or Big Sisters with BBBS SEPA is easy. To find out more, or to start the application process contact Elizabeth Caldarola at firstname.lastname@example.org. BBBS SEPA will set up a time to meet with you at your office for our new volunteer interview to help us make the best “match” for you!
