Big Sibs at Williamstown Elementary

  • Time Commitment: 1-3 hours per week
  • Work Hours: Monday-Friday 9am-3pm
  • Contact: Lindley Wells

Big Sibs is a volunteer mentoring program based at Williamstown Elementary School. This program is for Williams students interested in forming and sustaining a one-on-one relationship with an elementary student. Given the meaningful and positive impact the Williams students have on the elementary school students they work with, we ask that the Williams students think seriously about this commitment before applying. Interested students must commit to a minimum of two semesters. Big Sibs generally meet with their mentee 1-2 times per week for a 45 minute to 1.5 hour period of time, scheduling is flexible and will be determined by the Big Sib and the mentee’s classroom teacher.
