Focused on providing mentors with strength based, practical, and results-oriented learning modules that utilize reflection, discussion, and collaboration to foster the delivery of the highest quality mentoring services for the children we serve.

We know how you’re feeling. As a Big Sister or Big Brother you are faced with a myriad of challenges as you seek to build an influential, enduring relationship with your Little.

We’re here to help. By attending sessions led by trained youth development professionals, Big Sisters and Big Brothers will learn alongside their fellow mentors, while gaining access to the knowledge, skills, and competencies they need to take their match relationships to the next level.

The Mentor Academy has its perks. By completing three or more of the Academy’s workshops, Bigs will be recognized as a Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters Gold Certified Mentor. In doing so, they will receive unique benefits, including exclusive acknowledgement of their achievement and a BBBS prize pack only available to Gold Certified Bigs.
