If you’ve been looking for a way to volunteer and get involved with our neighborhood’s kids, here’s an excellent opportunity. The Big Brothers Big Sisters program has a huge backlog of 900 kids that are waiting to be matched up with a mentor.
All they need is for mentors to be able to consistently spend time each week with a child that needs a role model, event if it’s only for a couple of hours per week.
The kids range in age from 7 to 16, and possibly as young as 4 in some cases. Mentors give a list of their interests, and program leaders match them up with kids that are a good match. Activities range from baseball games and other sports to art, outdoor adventures, and more.
