Support Our Community. Support Our Children. Support Our Future.
Mentor South Bend.

The city of South Bend Mentoring Initiative’s mission is to significantly increase the number of mentors in our community.  The Mentoring Initiative is not a new mentoring organization, rather, it is a promotional initiative designed to support the city’s two primary mentoring programs: Big Brothers Big Sisters of St. Joseph County and the South Bend Education Foundation’s Mentoring Program. Please volunteer your time or financial support to enhance mentoring in the city of South Bend, and please visit http://www.bbbs-sjc.org and http://www.edfo.org/mentors.htm to donate or become a mentor.

If being a mentor is not quite the right fit for you, there are several other outstanding organizations in our community dedicated to serving our city's youth. Please visit our Mentor Initiative Partners to learn more about these opportunities to get involved.
