Bridge to Kids Mentoring Programs
Bowdoin mentors serve as caring young adults who help develop the confidence, character, and aspirations of local children. Mentors use this experience to discover the personal rewards of public service while also learning about the local community, local schools, and interaction with children.
The McKeen Center offers several ways to get involved with mentoring through our many Student Led Service Organizations and in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters. Follow the links below to find out more about these opportunities.
