Earlier this year Big Brothers Big Sisters of Wichita County and Vernon ISD joined
forces to bring the program to the Middle School campus. Big Brothers Big Sisters
aims to foster positive mentorship relationships for children.
In support of this effort, Big Brothers Big Sisters is hosting a Mentorship Rally
entitled “Building Bright Futures” that will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.,
Thursday, at the Red River Valley Museum.
The rally gives residents the opportunity to learn about the Big Brothers Big
Sisters program and how to volunteer to become involved in the lives of the young
students in the community. By being matched with a mentor on a one-to-one
basis, these children will have access to positive role models who can guide and
inspire them to reach their full potential.
The object of the rally is to give potential volunteers a chance to talk with Big
Brothers Big Sisters staff members, ask questions, and gain insights into the
responsibilities and rewards of being a Big Brother or Big Sister.
Those attending the rally will have the opportunity to complete their volunteer
application at the event. Light refreshments will be served. The rally is sponsored
in part by Vernon College.
