Big Brothers Big Sisters needs volunteer ‘Bigs’ | News, Sports, Jobs | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey



ESCANABA — Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Central Upper Peninsula serving Escanaba and Gladstone has six girls and two boys who are waiting to be matched. Anyone who was part of Big Brothers Big Sisters in the Escanaba/Gladstone area and who would like to be matched again is encouraged to apply. Mentor “Bigs” are all ages from high school students to retirees. It only takes four hours a month and we encourage our volunteers to do things that they do in their everyday life. Mentoring is fun, flexible, and a powerful way to make a real difference in one’s community by providing a safe space for a young person to explore, learn and grow, igniting their potential for a bright future.

Big Brothers Big Sisters also offers great group activities for our matches such as cooking classes, movie night, hiking, bowling, and trips to Pictured Rocks and Lambeau Field.

“We have many options for volunteering” said Jayne Letts, executive director. “Mentoring is flexible for people with busy schedules and can be an exceptional, rewarding volunteer experience. You can enjoy all sorts of activities together including hiking, biking, group sports, reading, crafting, visiting a farm or museum, sharing a meal together or other activities that you already participate in and would like to share with a young person. You can participate as an individual, a couple or a family. There is an option for everyone.”
