SAC and Inspire U Partner for Workplace Mentoring Program

Plant the seeds of higher education in a 3rd grader’s mind! Become a “BIG” mentor.

San Antonio College and Rogers Elementary are joining forces, along with the Big Brothers, Big Sisters of South Texas (BBBSST) and Inspire U, to offer workplace mentoring to a cohort of 20 third grade students from Rogers Elementary.

Roger Elementary wants to create a “college-going” environment early on, and we think the SAC family can definitely help. Any full-time employee (faculty or staff member) at San Antonio College can sign-up to take part in the program. All it takes is for you to have an open heart, and for you to devote one lunch hour per month to your “little” brother/sister.

Students will be transported from their school to SAC. SAC, in turn, will work with BBBSST to develop programming for the monthly meetings. All you have to do is show up!

What is Big Brothers, Big Sisters?  

  Big Brothers Big Sisters of America is a non-profit organization whose goal is to help all children reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with volunteer mentors. Big Brothers Big Sisters is one of the oldest and largest youth mentoring organizations in the United States and aims to mentor children of all ages in communities across the country.  

What is Inspire U?  

  Part of the SA2020 initiative, Inspire U is a mentoring program designed to connect youth to careers, beginning as early as elementary school and continuing through high school. The program is designed so the mentor can serve as an adult sounding board for a student's college aspirations and career exploration.  

How is this program funded?  

  The funding is provided through Inspire U and Big Brothers, Big Sisters of South Texas. There is no cost to the participants or the College.  

What will I do with my “Little” brother or sister?  

  As a “Big”, you will get to choose to take part in the planned group activity or simply hang out with your “Little” during the one-hour timeframe. BBBSST and SAC will work together to develop fun group activities around the campus each month, which may include: visiting the Scobee Education Center, playing basketball in the Candler gym, attending a Theatrical performance in McAllister, and much more!    

How do I become a “Big”?  

  To become a “Big” with SAC, you will need to sign-up to attend an Info/Orientation Session. There is an application process which entails a background check and an interview process to facilitate a good match between the “Big” and the “Little.”    

Who can participate?  

  Any full-time faculty or staff member is eligible to participate—no matter what role you play at SAC.  

When/where will the activities take place?  

  The program will only operate during the academic year. All activities will take place on campus at SAC.  

Can I be released from work to participate?  

 •  The students will be bussed to SAC for the typical noon to 1pm lunch hour. Time spent mentoring is considered personal time, therefore faculty and staff “Bigs” should make arrangements with their supervisors to ensure participation at all events. Lunch will be provided free of charge.    

How are mentors (Bigs) paired with students (Littles)?  

  After the application is completed, BBBSST will facilitate an interview. All “Bigs” will be interviewed to ensure a good match is made. The same process will occur with the “Littles” and their parents.  

How can I get more info?  

  To learn more about this special program, contact Helen Torres in the Office of Partnerships & Extended Services. Helen Torres can be reached via email at htorres@alamo.edu or by calling 210-486-0393.
