The Dr. Dane and Mary Louise Miller Foundation recently supported the efforts of Big Brothers Big Sisters youth mentoring programs in Kosciusko County with a donation of $2,000.
This generous donation will help support Kosciusko County children in need who are enrolled in a Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program.
Big Brothers Big Sisters has school buddy programs throughout Kosciusko county including: Pierceton, Lincoln, Harrison, Washington, Madison, Milford and Syracuse.
Kids are waiting for a school buddy in each one of the schools listed, so if you’re over 18 and have an hour to hang out with a child once a week at the school you can make a difference in a childs life.
For more flexibility you could become a community-based Big and take the child to the park, for ice cream, or just go for a walk. This program only takes three to four hours a month.
Start thinking today about how you can help a child reach their full potential through one of these programs.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Indiana is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help children reach their potential through professionally supported on-to-one mentoring relationships with measurable impact.
