At Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah, our volunteer program has 75 boys waiting to be paired with an adult male mentor (Big Brother). These Littles are excited to have a role model, friend, and mentor in their life and can’t wait to start. But these boys have been waiting to be matched, some for a year or more, because of the lack of men volunteers.
Men To Mentor
The Men to Mentor campaign was created to combat the lack of male volunteers. We have cultivated a plan to help encourage volunteering amongst men and spread the word about the ever-growing need for male mentors and volunteers. This campaign was launched in June 2022 to recruit 103 male volunteers in 103 days of summer.
There are many reasons to join us at Big Brother Big Sisters of Utah. Volunteering is a journey that allows for growth. Mentors learn leadership, perspective expansion, communication, and teaching techniques. Mentors also experience the joy that comes from helping ignite a local child’s potential.
