BIG Time Fun!
ETOWAH COUNTY RSVP
Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Northeast Alabama needs more mentors. You can choose from mentoring children for about one hour a week while the child is in school, or mentoring a child in their own community for about 5 hours a month. Mentoring a child in school means helping them with classwork (reading, math, science, etc.) and mentoring a child in their own neighborhood can be anything from talking, playing games, coaching them in sports, visiting area attractions, or just hanging out.
These children need a positive role model in their lives, and even a little bit of time goes a long way.
Big Brothers/Big Sisters can also use help in the office with paperwork or receptionist duties.
