Make a Big Impact with Big Brothers Big Sisters

Posted: Friday, May 10, 2019

There’s a mentor in everyone. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Indiana is excited to announce its spring campaign that will run now through July 22 to raise awareness for the need of mentors in our community and to recruit 200 adult mentors in the next 90 days.

Every Friday during the 90-day campaign, committee members, advocates, board and staff members will wear newly branded black t-shirts to promote awareness of the campaign and to open up a dialogue about the urgent need for mentors. Each promoter will be given a “Big Brothers Big Sisters Recruitment Kit” consisting of a shirt, conversation cards, and ink pens to help advance the campaign and recruit volunteers.

Right now, there are over 500 children on the waitlist to be matched with a mentor through Big Brothers Big Sisters, and an additional 300 waiting to get on that waitlist. In Huntington County there are 24 children waiting for someone to stand in their corner. You can accept this mission and help them step on the path to success. Sign up to be a volunteer today and discover the BIG difference that you can make on a child’s life! Are you already a Big Brother or Sister? Share your story! Let your friends, family, everyone you know how simple and rewarding it is to be a Big!
