Review for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Palm Beach and Martin Counties, Inc., West Palm Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Thank you to Big Brothers Big Sisters for allowing me to mentor a student. I was able to provide assistance to my mentee by guiding her through a series of steps she had to complete. Each step helped her pin point what she needed to focus on for her future in high school, college and career. By using the program, it was able to bring out her strengths and weaknesses and I was therefore able to make suggestions on what she needed to look into further so she could try to improve. It is a useful program because it provided the student with accountability, it had a time frame in which it needed to be completed to gain their needed credit, something that will be needed in their future no matter what they do.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More direct contact with student so that we could make a genuine connection in order to gain their trust into what we are recommending they do.
