Serving an area of Sussex to St. Stephen, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Saint John has the goal of making sure that every kid who needs a mentor, has a mentor. This being said Big Brothers Big Sisters is constantly looking for people to volunteer for one of multiple programs that seek to teach the importance of giving and giving back, of staying in school, and for having respect for family, peers and community.
Every year Big Brothers Big Sisters holds what has come to become their signature fundraiser, Bowl For Kids Sake, and surpassed their goal by raising an amazing $158 000. This event raises funds that go directly to covering costs of things like screening and training volunteers, matching children with volunteers and to support the ongoing supervision of these matches. Through the valued participation of bowlers as well as many sponsors, this event plays an important role in spreading the word about the need for caring mentors to help youth in our community.
Applying to be a mentor is easy and can be done online here.
