“I prepared myself to ‘mentor’ Jake as he approached life’s challenges. What I could not have prepared myself for were the lessons I would learn as his mentor.”
For 100 years, Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles (JBBBSLA) has provided professionally-supported, free, one-to-one mentoring for Jewish boys and girls, ages 6 and older, who could benefit from an additional committed, attentive, and positive adult role-model.
We match Littles (mentees) with Bigs (mentors) based on compatibility of interests, personalities, strengths and needs. Bigs and Littles spend quality time together twice a month engaging in recreational, cultural, or educational outings. They can also participate in agency-sponsored events with other matches. While participants commit to the program for at least one year, most remain in each other’s lives for much longer as caring, trusted friends.
