BF-LF mentoring has an immediate need for responsible adult volunteers to match with youths, age 5-17. Right now, there are six girls and five boys in Vermillion, two girls in Elk Point, and an 11-year-old boy in North Sioux City, all waiting for a Big Friend. Mentors spend 2 hours per week with their match, and the program emphasizes building a relationship and sharing life experiences.
More information is available at www.bflfmentoring.org. Click on the volunteer button to find the Big Friend application, which can be filled out and returned online, or call John Gille at 605-421-5050, or e-mail email@example.com .
Mentoring is a great way to help our area youths reach their potential, and the need is great, so become a mentor today.
