Children who participated in the YMCA’s after-school programs will be eligible for a Big Brothers Big Sisters “match.” Matches of youth and adult mentors will meet for one hour per week and ideally utilize the equipment and programs at the YMCA branches.
“We are thrilled at the opportunity to partner with such a wonderful organization,” said Paula Hayes, director of Big Brothers Big Sisters, in a news release. “Not only will we be able to provide more children with a big brother or sister, this partnership also provides volunteers throughout the county with additional opportunities to get involved and make a difference.”
I featured one Big Brothers Big Sisters volunteer on this blog a few months ago. Read about Jessica Crossman’s experience with the program and learn how you can get involved.
