La Ballona Creates Mentoring Program with Big Brothers/Big Sisters

1386869505001-Ff-Hh-artsandcrafts3La Ballona Elementary School is the first school in the district to launch a school-based mentoring program in conjunction with Big Brothers/Big Sisters. The program, which could soon be replicated at other CCUSD schools, provides consistent, individualized time and attention to at-risk kids in public elementary and middle schools throughout L.A. County. Volunteers make a one-year commitment and meet with their Little for one hour during lunch, once a week at the child’s school.
Although this program takes place at school, the mentoring program isn’t limited to the classroom. While some Littles talk with their Bigs about class or do homework together, others shoot hoops in the gym or play on the playground. At the end of the day, it’s really about starting a consistent friendship, providing guidance and inspiring students to become what they never dreamed possible. It starts with YOU!
La Ballona is currently recruiting Littles in need of a Big. For more information, please contact the school or visit
