Asian Volunteer Mentors

Our mission is to provide support to Asian communities, especially recent immigrant families transitioning to New York City by recruiting new mentors, creating exposure and awareness, and offering peer support to one-to-one Mentoring relationships. The group focuses many of its efforts around the New American Program (NAP) at Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC.

About the New American Program

NAP is Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC’s specialized mentoring program, helping children from immigrant families overcome the unique obstacles they may face while navigating culture, language, and customs different from their home environment. NAP currently supports the Cantonese, Mandarin, and Korean speaking communities in New York City, with our greatest need being Male volunteers to be matched with the boys on our wait-list. Among the Little Brothers and Little Sisters matched in NAP

  • 96% show significant improvement in psychological resiliency
  • 85% show great progress in academic achievement, emotional health, and overall ability to adjust to life in a new country
  • 90% report heightened self esteem

Asian Mentoring Committee Goals

The Asian Mentoring Committee’s current goal is to generate enough sustainable income to expand the reach of the New American Program and serve a greater number of children. The committee also supports current mentees through a series of group outings set up to help develop a sense of community. To recruit more Asian volunteer mentors, the group builds partnerships with community organizations and corporations.
