Family Services of NW PA
Family Services of NWPA (FSNWPA) - Big Brothers and Big Sisters
Children are matched with a consistent, one to one relationship with a supportive, nonjudgmental volunteer mentor. The relationship is monitored monthly by staff to problem solve obstacles in the relationship in order to support the relationship. Community Based Mentoring (CB) - provides the opportunity for a volunteer age 18+ to establish a relationship with a child ages 6 - 13 from a single parent home. The child and the volunteer are matched through common interests in hopes that the volunteer is able to enhance the child's assets as well as broaden his/her horizons. Volunteers are trained to look for teachable moments to develop social, academic, physical skills as well as work on ethics, hobbies and cultural, recreational and environmental experiences. Site Based Mentoring (SB): This component provides the opportunity for an adult volunteer to establish a one to one mentoring relationship with a child/youth who is experiencing an academic or social adjustment problem. College students are primarily utilized as sited based mentors.
