About the Role

Day to day: As a youth serving agency, we work at the request of the young people enrolled in our programs to find them the mentors that they want and need – mentors that can ignite and empower their promise and potential. In order to meet the needs of our clients – the youth we serve – we have launched a new initiative: The Mentor Corps Fellowship. The Mentor Corps Fellowship is a paid, paraprofessional fellowship that seeks to multiply the impact of highly-sought-after mentors by matching them 1-to-1 with multiple Littles in our program(s) as they also lead important project-based initiatives for the organization.

In recent years, our agency has gone through an extensive internal process to ensure we are intentionally welcoming, serving, and supporting LGBTQ youth, families, volunteers, and staff. Our agency is excited to expand this work by hiring a MentorCorps Fellow to assist our agency in developing avenues for LGBTQ youth to connect with BBBSMT programs. In addition to mentoring a cohort of LGBTQ youth, the MentorCorps Fellow will 1) develop and facilitate virtual GSAs (Gender and Sexuality Alliances) for geographically and socially isolated LGBTQ youth, and 2) provide a channel for these LGBTQ youth to connect with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle TN programming and mentors.
