Big Brothers Big Sisters seeks a Program Specialist who will thrive in a growing organization that is dedicated to positively impacting more youth through high quality, 1-to-1 mentoring. In this role, you will provide support and strengthen mentoring relationships between youth and positive adult mentors matched in our site-based program. This role will primarily work within our E-Mentoring program. E-Mentoring is a virtual mentoring program that gives Bigs the flexibility to mentor on their own time and build a connection with a teenager using technology as a shared space. This program strives to help high school students develop personal, academic and career skills. This program is a blend of virtual and in person mentoring. Your coaching and guidance will help empower and inspire youth to reach their full, inherent potential, especially youth of color who are disproportionately impacted by systemic barriers. Primary responsibilities will include providing support to new and existing BBBS matches to ensure child safety, positive outcomes for youth, healthy and satisfying relationships between children and volunteers, and a strong sense of affiliation with BBBS. Other responsibilities will include facilitating lessons to high school youth on life skills, college, and career readiness, the interviewing and assessment of volunteers and youth, facilitating the introduction of new mentoring relationships, and conducting orientation for new volunteers interested in the site-based program.


As a youth serving agency, we work at the request of the young people enrolled in our programs to find them the mentors that they want and need – mentors that can ignite their potential and have lived experience that youth can identify with. In order to meet the needs of our clients – the youth we serve, we have launched a new initiative: The MentorCorps Fellowship. The MentorCorps Fellowship is a paid fellowship that seeks to expand the impact of mentorship by matching highly-sought-after mentors with multiple youth and embedding these mentors with partner organizations to support mentoring initiatives.

Mentor Corps

This is a selective, cohort-based fellowship designed to expand our impact to more youth through group mentoring. Mentor Corps Fellows are matched with an average of 10 Littles, depending on the program and fellowship term, where they meet throughout the week to facilitate ongoing professional development and coaching.

Mentor Corps Fellows are selected and trained to serve as one-to-one mentors in our program for 6-12 months and are compensated accordingly.

  • Ability to meet same requirements needed to serve as a mentor in our program
  • Must have 10 – 20 hours a week to commit to mentoring
