Tucsonâ€™s youth need your help! Volunteer as a â€˜Bigâ€™ to help a â€˜Littleâ€™ reach their fullest potential. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tucson (BBBST) matches adults with youth from ages 6-17 in one-to-one mentoring relationships. â€˜Bigsâ€™ and â€˜Littlesâ€™ hang out twice a month, doing activities that they both like. These outings form a friendship that can help the â€˜Littleâ€™ improve in school, relate better with their parents and change their attitude towards drugs and alcohol.
BBBST will be at the Airman & Family Readiness Center (A&FRC) on Thurs, Aug. 2 at 2:30 p.m. to talk about their program, their need for mentors and how you can get involved.
BBBST is looking to serve youth from military families; BBBST sees parents as essential to a successful relationship between Bigs and Littles. There will be a second presentation on Aug. 2 at 3:30 p.m. to talk to parents about their program and its benefits for the â€˜Littlesâ€™. They will also talk about the enrollment process, how they select their â€˜Bigsâ€™, their screening process and address any concerns that you may have.
To sign-up for the BBBST presentations, call the A&FRC at 228-5690 or stop by and see us in Bldg. 2441.
