January is National Mentoring Month!
We'll be celebrating our amazing mentors all month long!
During National Mentoring Month, Starbucks will be partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters to say thank you to our Bigs.
All of our Bigs can stop by the Starbucks on US 33 and SR 15 each Friday in January to receive a free drink! Make sure to bring your Big ID Card.
Thank you to Miss Davidson's 8th Grade Marketing and Philanthropy Class at Pierre Moran Middle School!
This class worked hard to help our agency. One of their projects was to have an art contest about what mentoring means to them. Another awesome project was to create fliers to inspire teachers, volunteers and potential mentors to become Bigs. Here are some of their great submissions!
Thanks to everyone in the class for working hard on these and other projects for our agency! They did a great job and are enthusiastic about the mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters!
