I am a part of a wonderful organization called Big Brothers Big Sisters. This is a mentoring program to help children in the community.
We have many children on our wait list looking for a mentor, and I know there are adults in this community looking to make a difference. It is the giving season, and what better way to give back than to mentor a child?
A common misconception is time commitment. How can I mentor when I have so much going on in my life already? For our community program, we only ask you to meet with your little two times per month. We also have our Big Buddies program located in Horicon, Mayville and Watertown where a buddy meets with their little at school during lunch once per week.
As a case manager, I am always there to guide the relationships, help out in any way I can, and provide extra support for every match. This contributes to why BBBS is a thriving organization because we help both volunteer and little. If you are interested or know anyone that would be interested, please contact us at 920-261-2315 or check out our website at bbbsdodgewatertown.org.
