Big Brothers Big Sisters seeks mentors in La Pine, Madras

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Oregon

BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- It’s the same thing every January: gyms are overflowing, kale is selling like hotcakes, and everyone is trying to be their best for the New Year.  But what if this year, you could resolve to do something even more important than deciding to stomach a green smoothie once a week?  What if you could make a resolution worth keeping—one that inspires more resolutions? 

That’s why Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Oregon is asking the citizens of La Pine and Madras, this January, to make THE BIG RESOLUTION!

January is National Mentoring Month, so be part of the celebration by encouraging friends, family members and coworkers to become DEFENDERS OF POTENTIAL! 

Big Brothers Big Sisters is in great need of Big Brothers, as the majority of the deserving children on their wait list are boys.  Community Outreach Coordinator Bridget Albert will hold two volunteer information meetings in La Pine and in one in Madras the last week of January, where you can come learn what it takes to become a DEENDER OF POTENTIAL.
