Think Big Youth Organization

Think Big is a youth organization designed to engage today’s youth in activities that will help develop their social-emotional skills, their cognitive thinking and physical health.

Think Big Youth Organization is applying for a federally funded 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant, which will provide support and enrichment opportunities for our youth. Join us for an informational meeting at the Hinesville Library on Friday, January 12 at 10:30 AM, where we will discuss how this funding will benefit students, families, and our community. This meeting is free to attend and open to the public. For additional information, click the Eventbrite link below.

Who We Are

Think BiG is a 501(c)(3), community based youth mentorship designed to allow youth to explore and discus life experiences in a safe and nurturing environment. The program is composed of experts in the field of Child Development and well trained volunteers. The dedicated volunteers in the program bring experience, education and life skills to the youth that helps foster long lasting positive relationships between the children and adults.

It has been proven that children that have been a part of a mentorship program, with at least one consistent adult in their life have greater success. The far reaching benefits of this relationship are lower school dropout rates, a greater understanding of government along with the judicial system, and being better prepared to build good, strong relationships with their own families.

Think BiG partners with educational institutions, local businesses, community organization, and government to offer programs that support the youth.

Mentorship

The Think Big Mentor Program is a free Program for children and youth ages 5-18. Our goal is to provide these children & their families with connections to community resources & support them in successful peer & family relationships. Children in the Think Big youth Mentor program will be matched with a caring adult mentor. Children may choose to participate on their own free will, or children can also be referred to the program by their parents or guardians, friends, schools, county agencies, community & religious organizations.

Why Mentor?

Mentors can be an added support to youths and their families. Mentors can help with homework; engage in indoor/outdoor activities and provide support with problems in school or at home. All mentors enrolled in the Mentor Program are screened, given background & finger print checks, and receive ongoing training and support.

Parental Engagement

We deeply involve families in all of our programming. We engage our parents through 1-on-1 meetings during our intake process, and then we maintain regular contact with parents through progress reports, phone calls, and home visits. We also host monthly family nights, workshops and community outreach to give parents an opportunity to meet other families, share experiences, and develop peer networks.

How Do I Qualify?

To be a mentor you must:
• Be 18 years of age or older
• Pass a mandatory screening
• Commit to spending 4-to-6 hours per month one-on-one with mentee
• Attend initial Training
• Have internet access for virtual meetings
