Big Friend-Little Friend, the local youth mentoring program covering Clay and Union counties, has received a number of youth applications and would like to match them with adults as soon as possible. There are two boys and three girls in Vermillion, two boys in Irene who would like an adult mentor, and a female volunteer in Parker who wants to match with an 8 to 11 year-old in the Parker area.
Volunteers spend two hours per week with their matches, and everyone benefits from the experience. To apply, visit the Web site http://www.bflfmentoring.org and fill out the Big Friends application under the Volunteer button.
