Grass Valley Calls for Big Brothers and Big Sisters!
Grass Valley Elementary staff members are launching a new mentoring program in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Clark County. They are looking for volunteers, over the age of 18, to act as “big” mentors. The only requirement to be a volunteer is the ability to make a weekly commitment to the program and a desire to make a difference in the life of a child.
Volunteers will be matched with a student in the third or fourth grade and will begin the partnership by visiting their “little” for lunch at school (about 40 minutes – 1 hour). Volunteers may eventually engage in recess or other educational games with their student. It is the hope that pairings will continue at least through the 2013-2014 school year. All adults will be given training from Big Brothers Big Sisters, as well as a background check and interview. We know that this will be a truly rewarding experience for our volunteers as well as our students!
If you or someone you know is interested, or if you have questions, please contact: Chrys Royall by phone at 360-335-3000 extension 79154 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
