Testimonials

“I like the Boys & Girls Club because it is a place to come and know it is safe and get my homework done.  Also, I like to hang out.  If I have nothing to do after school I can come and do my homework.  Because I’m coming here I’m getting good grades compared to when I didn’t come as much.”

Mentoring Opportunities

The Boys and Girls Club of Burlington offers three different types of mentoring. For each type, the minimum commitment is one hour, once a week for one year.

Community Based: Become a positive adult in a child’s life and expand his/her world by spending time in the community together. Mentor and Mentee are matched based on interests, hobbies and compatibility. This mentoring program also has ian academic component; mentors are expected to provide additional reading help to their mentees twice a month. Mentors are free to plan and implement their own reading strategies or work with the Educational Director to ensure that mentees are improving in their reading skills.

For each program, mentors are required to complete an interview, application, background check and a training session. Community based mentors are required to complete fingerprint checks as well.
