Lackawanna Middle School & High School
Big Brothers / Big Sisters Mentoring Program
Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) is the premier youth mentoring agency in the country. We are
dedicated to providing children with carefully screened volunteers who will spend focused one-onone
time with them. These quality relationships are built on friendship and trust, and are proven to
be a significant positive influence in the life of the child, and the volunteer.
The High School Bigs Mentoring Program (HSBM Program) allows volunteers to reach children on
a whole new level at a local school or community site. Bigs and Littles meet one day a week for one
or two hours of directed and supervised activities. The focus is on fun and building a friendship.
However, a portion of the time the Bigs and Littles share can be spent working on schoolwork and
strengthening academics. Matches will participate in games, arts & crafts projects, share stories
about their lives and just enjoy each other’s company!
