Big Brothers Big Sisters holds volunteer recruitment drive

Published 9:57 am Friday, September 13, 2013

Big Brothers Big Sisters of WNC will hold a Back-to-School Volunteer Recruitment Drive on Sept. 14 from 2-3 p.m. at the Polk County Public Library in Columbus.

The organization hopes to recruit new volunteers this fall for their community and school programs. Interested persons age 18 and older are invited to attend to learn about volunteer opportunities. Anyone who cannot attend can contact the office at 828-859-923 to learn about becoming a mentor.

The Volunteer Recruitment Drive helps the local Big Brothers Big Sisters program match youth from the waiting list with a positive role model and to match students in local elementary schools and after-school sites with a school mentor. The BBBS organization needs volunteers ages 18 and older to mentor one hour a week in an elementary school or to share activities in the community twice a month with a young person from a single-parent home.
