Neighbors for Neighbors

Do stuff with and for your neighbors

For women 18 and older: This one-to-one mentoring program matches girls in elementary school with women mentors.  Matches meet once a week at the Little Sister’s school or at an after-school site.  Weekly visits are 45 minutes to an hour for one academic school year.


School-Based mentors are not teachers or tutors; they are caring and consistent friends.  They do arts and crafts, shoot hoops in the gym, read books, or simply share stories over lunch.  Each match independently determines how best to spend their time together, and Big Sister staff are always available to provide activity ideas and support.


We have School-Based Mentoring at the:

  • J.F. Kennedy Elementary School in Jamaica Plain
  • Tobin K-8 School in Mission Hill
  • Edison K-8 School in Brighton
  • Jackson/Mann Elementary School in Allston
  • Multiple other locations throughout Greater Boston!


We are trying to match 55 girls in the above schools with Big Sisters this school year!
