The Business Case For Youth Mentoring
Employers across the nation have demonstrated their deep commitment to the concept of youth mentoring and understand that mentoring today's youth makes sense from multiple business perspectives:
Engaging employees, providing opportunities for skill building and retention.
Developing the future talent pipeline by preparing young people for college and careers.
Strengthening viable communities.
Employees who work for companies that encourage volunteers report increased job satisfaction, a strong connection to the community, and a more positive feeling about their employer. Here are three ways to engage your employees in one of the most rewarding and impactful volunteer experiences available with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Host a recruitment event
Hundreds of Central Arkansas youth are waiting to be paired with a caring adult. Help us share our youth mentoring opportunities with your employees by hosting a recruitment event, such as:
Lunch and Learn
Company Volunteer Fair
Customized it to fit your company needs (intranet, newsletter, poster in staff lounge, etc.
Volunteer as a corporate group
We have several group mentoring program opportunities for employees to volunteer. Our Site Based programs Bigs Afterschool, Bigs In School, and Beyond School Walls, offer opportunities for employees to volunteer at various times as a group. Bigs in School and Bigs Afterschool take you where young people are at school and after school.
