Celebrate Mentoring

Our Big Futures program culminates in Celebrate Mentoring, which recognizes graduating matches and celebrates the positive impact of mentoring. 


Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have decided to implement alternative plans to celebrate our graduating matches. The traditional event, Celebrate Mentoring, which was scheduled for Sunday, April 26 at the Indiana Historical Society, has been canceled and replaced with a virtual website celebration with the potential to still host an in-person event in the next few months.

This was not an easy decision to make but ultimately the health of all of you, our staff, community partners and supporters, mentors, families and Littles is most important. We are currently working to finalize plans for this new format and will keep you all informed as we have more to share. Stay tuned—we have some excellent ideas to celebrate our graduating Bigs and Littles!
