Virtual Mentoring

In March face-to-face contact halted indefinitely. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Central Blue Ridge program team has responded to shifting expectations.  All BBBS matches began to meet “virtually”.  This could look like phone calls, video chats, letters, text messages or care packages.  Match support contacts and surveys are continuing as usual to ensure quality and safety standards being met.  A weekly newsletter is being sent out to maintain up-to-date communication with matches.The contact has shifted to include a focus on ideas for virtual or long-distance connection, self-care and community resources to meet basic needs.
