We appreciate that individuals interested in becoming a BIG are usually active members within their community. So, to help make the enrollment process as seamless as possible, we have implemented the use of the BBBSA national online training program.

This on-line pre-match training and assessment is a general orientation to mentoring. It focuses on what a mentor is, what a mentor does, and how to build a good mentoring relationship. It will help you become aware of personal expectations while exploring the roles and responsibilities of a mentor, the match life cycle and steps to successful volunteering.

The training is broken up into manageable modules and can be completed at one sitting in roughly two hours, or spread out over the course of a couple days. Anything specific to BBBSBC will be covered in your in-person interview session with one of our Enrollment Specialists.

Reach out to Jennifer Tippit, Enrollment & Match Manager at 215-416-0612 ext. 100 or Pero@bbbsbc.org if you would like more information and to receive a link from The Learning Exchange so you can begin the on-line training. She can also help if you do not have access to a computer and is happy to discuss an alternative method to completing the online program.

Parent Orientation

This is a required orientation for all parents/guardians

“Parent Orientation” is a general introduction into our programs and the role of a parent/guardian in these programs. It will also focus on the enrollment process, Child Safety Ground Rules, and the matching process. It will help you decide whether our program is the right fit for your child. Most importantly, it will help you effectively support a potential future match for your child.

Please RSVP to Jennifer Tippit, Enrollment & Match Manager, at 215-416-0612  or Pero@bbbsbc.org

A Pre-interview Application will be given out at the end of this orientation. Once this application is returned, your child will be considered on the “Waiting to be Interviewed List.”
