Big Brothers Big Sisters seeks volunteers

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Blair County, which serves local area youth and offers a high quality one-to-one youth mentoring program, is looking for volunteers.

Volunteers in the program are known as “Bigs,” while their matches are known as “Littles.”

Research shows that youth in BBBS programs are less likely to engage in drug and alcohol abuse and skipping school.

The Blair County BBBS organization offers monthly children’s activities at the agency for matched and unmatched Littles.

Upcoming BBBS-sponsored events include the 29th annual Blair County Bowling for Kids’ Sake on May 2 and the 16th annual Blair County Sheetz Pepsi Golf Classic on July 22.

For more information on upcoming events, becoming a volunteer or to enroll your child in the program, contact the BBBS organization at 944-6129 or or visit
