A well-known youth mentoring program is expanding into Broome County for the first time. Big Brothers Big Sisters recently started operating in our area and is looking for mentors to pair with kids enrolled in the program.
The mentors spend a few hours a week with the children giving them a strong, one-on-one positive relationship, something the organization says can change a child's life.
Organizers said this program provides significant benefits in the development of children and teenagers.
If you are interested in volunteering you can contact the Big Brothers Big Sisters of the twin tiers through email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (570) 265-3009. More information can also be found here. The office is located on 10 Park Street, Suite 2 in Towanda, Pennsylvania.
