Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cumberland & Salem Counties (BBBS) welcomes Sharon Krementz as Program Manager of the Mentor2.0 program. She has spent the past 19 years as a seventh grade social studies teacher and is excited to use her prior experiences working with students to help the youth of the Mentor2.0 program.
As part of the Mentor2.0 program, mentor and mentee matches communicate weekly via a secure web-based platform and monthly group events. A BBBS staff member works with each match through the platform to manage, monitor, and evaluate the program in order to ensure success. The basic mentor requirements for the program include:
- Must be at least 21 years of age and hold an associate degree or higher.
- Must maintain a reliable internet connection and commit to sending a minimum of one weekly message on a topic that Mentor2.0 provides through the platform.
- Must commit to meeting your mentee once every four weeks for two hours at a Mentor2.0 facilitated event during the school year.
“Helping young adults has always been my passion,” said Krementz. “At one time, I was a Big Sister and it was a rewarding experience. I believe education and mentorship are major ways to assist youth in creating successful futures. I look forward to lending my knowledge, and enjoyment of life to the whole Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cumberland & Salem Counties community.”
“Sharon’s experience with the education sector and helping others makes her the perfect fit and we can’t wait to see her impact,” said BBBS President and CEO Donna Bennett.
