Be a Big Sister in a local elementary school!
For women 18 and older: This one-to-one mentoring program matches girls in elementary school (grades 2-5) with women mentors. Matches meet once a week at the Little Sister’s school or at an after-school site. Weekly visits are 45-60 minutes for one academic school year (September-JUne).
School-Based mentors are not teachers or tutors; they are caring and consistent friends. They do arts and crafts, shoot hoops in the gym, read books, or simply share stories over lunch. Each match independently determines how best to spend their time together, and Big Sister staff are always available to provide activity ideas and support.
Near the South End, there are two elementary schools: The Hurley Elementary School and the William Blackstone Elementary.
