How it Works

How The Volunteering Process Works

The following is a general overview of the process. You, the volunteer applicant:

  • Completes an application
  • Submits a vulnerable sector screen, criminal records check, and three references
  • Participates in a one-to-one interview with a staff member at the Big Brothers Big Sisters agency
  • Depending on the program, may be asked to participate in an assessment of their home environment
  • Successfully completes an orientation and child safety training
  • Is notified of your acceptance/non-acceptance
  • If accepted as a volunteer mentor, signs an agreement of confidentiality
The Matching Process (one-to-one and ISM)

Similar to the application and assessment process, the matching process:

  • The Case Manager, now familiar with the volunteer and the children and youth waiting to be matched, discusses a potential match with the volunteer, the child or youth, and, depending on the program, with the family
  • The Case Manager arranges for a meeting between the child or youth, the volunteer mentor, and often the parent or guardian
