Military (Youth) Mentoring Program: Serving Children Who Need Us Most Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii partners with schools, corporations and others in the community to pair children (“Littles”) with carefully screened and trained volunteer mentors (“Bigs”) to change lives for the better, forever. The Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) Military Mentoring Program (MMP) supports children ages 9-17 of active-duty military personnel of all branches and components including National Guard and Reserve. BBBS mentoring can provide an added layer of support to children of military families who may face extraordinary challenges and stresses because of multiple relocations, parent deployment, or other realities of military life. We also serve children who have lost a parent, or have had a parent return from combat wounded.
Our MMP matches adult mentors (volunteers from fields such as education, business and government as well as active or retired military personnel, cadets, or reservists) with children of military families, then professionally supports and engages the volunteer, child, and the child’s family.
Our MMP Works! The MMP:
• Reinforces the child’s connection with the parent and community. • Respects and acknowledges the value of military values (Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Excellence, etc.) as a platform for the child’s personal development (emotional, mental and physical).
• Facilitates K12 and post-K12 achievement (education and skills). In just the first year, participating agencies experienced great success in serving the military community: 84% of children involved in the program increased selfconfidence and 57% increased in overall academic performance. Mentoring really works!
How We Do It Our service model focuses on quality matches and this process takes time. Our staff carefully matches adult volunteer mentors with youth mentees in long-term, one-to-one friendships and provide professional support for the volunteers, children, and families throughout the life of the match.
