High School Bigs Return to Lawrence County

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lawrence County is so excited to bring back High School Bigs! After a year off due to last year’s state budget impasse, we are ready to start offering mentoring opportunities to High School Students ages 15 and up. At our peak, we were serving as many as 30 youth at one time at 3 different sites just in the High School Bigs program. What a huge impact on the community!

Our first site to re-open will be at the Cray Education Center in Neshannock Township, and will involve mentoring children ages 6-13 at the Crossroads after school program. We ask our volunteers to commit to three meetings each month for the duration of the school year. Meetings will take place on Wednesdays from 5-6:30 PM.

To become a high school big, each volunteer must complete an application and have an interview with BBBS staff. There is potential for other sites to re-open as well, so if you want to volunteer but aren’t available on Wednesdays, feel free to give BBBS a call at 724-654-5507 to discuss.
