Big Brothers Big Sisters - School-based Mentor
28 people are interested
Being a Big is a rewarding experience for both a volunteer and a child! In fact, our volunteers tell us they get as much out of the experience as the kids.
Our school-based or site-based mentoring program is where you get to flashback to those good old school days and spend about 1 hour with a child who needs an adult friend.
During this supervised setting you will offer a child opportunities to experience a child-adult friendship by playing games, reading, doing craft projects, talking, just sharing and more..... Volunteers are matched during lunch periods or after school hours. Volunteering takes place in Stevens Point, WI.(Hours do vary at each school)
