Agency description/mission: The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters is to build a stronger community through the creation and support of positive one-to-one relationships between children and adult volunteers. We have a very strong leadership team which has grown the agency over the past several years. There are wonderful opportunities to learn about the operations and management of a successful, youth mentoring non-profit organization. The incredible staff is looking forward to engaging CNM Service Learners on-site to learn about this fast-paced and rewarding work environment.

Service Learning opportunities: There are 4 major work areas for Service Learners:

  1. Accounting – learn the functions of a comprehensive accounting system for the regular BBBS agency, and also learn how to prepare and monitor a budget for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Donation Center;

  2. Marketing/PR – learn practical skills in implementing a local and state-wide advertising and marketing campaign. Graphic design, web-design, PR writing, and general marketing skills are welcome;

  3. Volunteer Retention – Will assist with the organization of parties and activities that volunteers, families, and children are invited to in both our Community-Based and Site-Based programs and participate on the match retention/satisfaction committee;

  4. Volunteer Recruitment – join a team of CNM service learners seeking to learn recruitment skills to provide volunteers for over 250 children on our waiting list. An ideal team would be to have a group of service learners recruiting at each of the CNM campuses.

Orientation/Training schedule: We provide comprehensive orientation and training for the specific work function. We utilize a variety of training resources, including on-line modules, manuals, personal, and hands-on opportunities, as needed to accommodate your service learning needs. Additional training in other departments is available to supplement your overall experience in a non-profit agency.

Special conditions or requirements: We perform a background check (criminal, sexual offender, MVD) and ask for 3 references.

Hours of operation when students are needed: Total = 4+. One for each major work area and as many as possible for Volunteer Recruitment.

Minimum hour commitment required: Volunteer Recruitment- variable hours (15 hours/semester minimum, up to as many hours desired); all other major work areas: at least 36 hours/semester (3 hours/week); 1 full school year preferred.
