Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Northwest Washington (BBBSNW) is looking for new mentors to help children in need in the upcoming school year.
The organization hopes to add 25 new mentors to its one-on-one mentoring program before the end of the year. BBBSNW currently serves more than 350 children in Whatcom and Skagit counties.
Mentors, or “Bigs,” spend 6-12 hours a month with their assigned “Littles” out in the community doing things the children enjoy.
Volunteers 18 years old or older are paired in one-on-one relationships with children between the ages of 6 and 14.
