The Asian Mentoring Committee (AMC) is an affinity group of Asian volunteers who support the agency, generate funds and help grow mentor interest to support our Asian Littles and 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. The committee also supports current mentees through a series of group outings set up to help develop a sense of community.
