Big Brothers Big Sisters is looking for mentors

On Thursday, Feb. 11 at 11:30 a.m., a representative from Big Brothers Big Sisters will present information on its Positive Pathways program. BBBS is looking for mentors for the program who can  spend a minimum of two hours a month helping youth ages 14-24 involved in the juvenile justice system get on the right path to reach their full potential.

The presentation will be in NIAR Hedrick Room 217. I will provide a light lunch, but you must RSVP  to Tracee or comment below so I know how much to order.
