Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Metro Milwaukee is seeking adult volunteers to mentor elementary-aged children in structured school settings at several local elementary schools including Forest Home Avenue Elementary on the near south side of Milwaukee.
Male and female mentors, aged 18 and older, are needed, beginning with the 2011-12 school year. Applicants who want to begin mentoring in September are asked to enroll by Friday, Aug. 12.
Once matched with a child, volunteers are required to meet weekly for a minimum of one hour. Activities include assisting with homework, participating in light recreational activities and playing games. Mentoring opportunities are offered during the after-school hours.
