Big Shoulders Fund Mentoring Program

Resources for Big Shoulders Fund Mentors

Many of the scholarships Big Shoulders Fund awards have a mentoring component. We are always looking for individuals interested in mentoring to participate in our programming. Big Shoulders Fund mentors meet with students monthly at the school site and serve as a positive adult role model for students that could benefit from this type of support.

We provide mentors to both our elementary and high school scholars. The program asks for a minimum of a year commitment as we wish to provide our scholars with a consistent and stable relationship with their mentor.

Please contact Kelsey Kyle with any questions.
