Big Brothers Big Sisters looking for mentors

Big Brothers Big Sisters of St. Johns County is in need of positive role models to be matched one-on-one with a child, either in a school setting or out in the community. This opportunity provides children in the community with friendship and personal support which can help facilitate success in their future.

BBBS offers both site and community-based mentoring programs for children (“Littles”) who are between 6-12 years old. Volunteers either visit their Littles at school or participate in activities out in the community. By simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, volunteers can start changing a young person’s life by just playing a board game or having lunch together.

Call (904) 829-9986 or go to the website at to complete a short online inquiry form. A Big Brothers Big Sisters staff member will contact you to schedule an orientation.
