BBBSSA targets youth-in-need and operates in conjunction with schools, children’s homes, communities and HIV/AIDS programmes
The concept and practice of mentoring is age-old. It is a tried and proven system where older role models provide a younger counterpart with guidance, care and support over time, to assist them in maximizing their potential.
By spending an hour a week with a youth-in-need (Littles), adult volunteers (Bigs) proved positive role models and life experiences that help build personal values such as self esteem, self respect and respect for others.
Whilst the relationship may only last a year, the effects typically last a lifetime.
