Enroll a Child

Program Eligibility For Youth

  • Youth ages 5 and up
  • Residents of Jefferson, Elk, and McKean Counties
  • Those exposed to some type of adversity that might make growing up a bit more difficult
  • Kids that want and who can benefit from having an extra positive adult role model in their life
  • Have a parent who is willing and able to support the match relationship

Process For Enrolling Youth:

  • Parent/Caregiver contacts The Guidance Center and we gather some basic information
  • We’ll schedule an interview and come to your home to conduct an interview with your child and their parent/caregiver, to determine needs, interests, and abilities
  • The child is then matched with a Big or placed on a waiting list until a suitable mentor is identified
