Executive Director

Originally from northwest Montana and a graduate of the University of Montana, I am grateful for the opportunity to come back to Montana and work for such an amazing agency.  In addition to my knowledge of the local area and people served, I bring a variety of experience: working with youth of all backgrounds and abilities, managing programs, small business ownership and yes even mentoring! 


I originally came to mentoring through a service project in college. At the time, I couldn't have imagined how volunteering as a mentor would lead me to managing a mentoring program in Phoenix, AZ and to this opportunity leading a nationally recognized mentoring program for my local community.  I've seen and felt the power of mentoring relationships and know first hand the positive impact these relationships have on Bigs, Littles and our local community.  


When not working, my husband and I usually grab our two dogs and get outside to enjoy everything northwest Montana has to offer.  I also enjoy reading, cooking, gardening and sustainability.

Mina Schaaf

Community-Based Program Coordinator - Missoula

Mina grew up in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. She first started working in her community in High School where she found her ardor for restorative justice and community mentorship. In the decade since, Mina has gone on to dedicate herself to community service work in conflict resolution, mediation, and mentoring. 


Mina’s BBBS journey began in Boston, MA in 2018 as a Big Sister for the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston. Since moving to Missoula, Mina continues to be a Big Sister here at BBBS of NW Montana. Mina is grateful for the experiences that lead her to mentoring opportunities in her community:


“If you asked me what life is about, I’d say that a good chunk of it is mentorship. 1:1 mentorship has had a significant impact on my life, and I aim to pay my positive experiences forward. Mentoring feels like a part of my purpose in this world.”


Outside of BBBS, Mina is an avid year-round outdoors person and enjoys back country hiking/camping and playing disc golf with friends.
