Having a mentor can make all the difference in the life of a child or teenager. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Rochester is in the business of setting kids up for success by connecting them with a dedicated mentor.
The organization recently received a Gold Standard Award from the Big Brothers Big Sisters Nationwide Leadership Council. It's awarded annually to BBBS affiliates across the country who meet criteria regarding number of children served, revenue, and retention rate. Only 10 out of 250 BBBS affiliates received this award in 2019.
There are currently 400 kids on BBBS' waiting list, and they're looking for mentor volunteers. To become a volunteer, donate to the organization, or learn more visit their website here.
