Mentor Programs

The Boys and Girls Club of Meriden’s Mentor Programs are designed to create a connection between a young person (i.e., mentees) and older or more experienced persons (i.e., mentors) who are acting in a selfless capacity to provide support that benefits one or more areas of the mentee’s development.  By donating one hour of your time a week, you will be helping a child improve their self-confidence, enhance their self-esteem and even help them to get better grades.

We currently have two Mentor Programs at the Club:  Project: HERO and The Big Buddy ⚡ Little Buddy Program:

Project: HERO

Project: HERO is our Mentoring Program for individuals 18 years or older who want to make a difference in a child’s life.  We are seeking volunteers who want to spend quality time with a cool Sidekick once a week.  Take your Little Buddy or Sidekick to the park, to a movie, to lunch, to a water park, a museum or a ball game…whatever the two of you want, it doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive
