mentor2.0 is Big Brothers Big Sisters’ technology-enriched 1-to-1 youth mentoring program directly targeting Amos P. Godby High School students. Through partnerships between Big Brothers Big Sisters, schools, companies and individuals, mentor2.0 will support high-impact mentoring relationships, aimed at providing high school students with the support and guidance they need to graduate high school and succeed in college and the workforce.

mentor2.0 maintains the fundamentals of quality mentoring Big Brothers Big Sisters is known for through 1-to-1 relationships, providing professional relationship support and maintaining a focus on safety for the benefit of the mentee and mentor. mentor2.0 expands this by using technology for much of the interaction between the mentee and mentor, reducing the in-person time commitment to once every 4-6 weeks, and supporting the customized curriculum guide throughout the match interaction.

  • students will work with their mentors in‐person and online to develop strong personal relationships; aspire to attend college; navigate the college experience; and build the necessary skills that lead to college success. Mentees are paired with a 9th grader enrolled at Godby High School and support the student throughout their high school career.
  • mentors and mentees meet once a month in‐person at group events facilitated by Big Brothers Big Sisters, and email once a week on a secure web‐based platform through guided prompts about everyday life. We will provide coaching when needed and resources along the way.


mentor2.0 maintains fundamental Big Brothers Big Sisters qualities:

  • 1‐to‐1 mentoring relationship
  • professional relationship support and on‐going coaching for the life of the pair
  • focus on safety and benefits of the mentoring relationship
