Help Us Find a Few Good Bigs!

Want to make a difference in the life of a child? Maybe becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister is for you!

Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) is currently reaching out for mentors from VideoRay to be matched to Pottstown Middle School students for our 2019-20 Beyond School Walls program. This program asks minimal commitment from you – two 1-hour visits each month during the school year at VideoRay. The program runs from late September until the beginning of June. That's it!

BBBS visits will be held every other Tuesday from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm (click here for full schedule)  Lunch will be provided for all visits, along with fun games and activities to do with your little!

So, how does Big Brothers Big Sisters make an impact? Let's talk about it! 

Studies have shown that only 56% of students reported having a school staff person to go to for school problems and just two-fifths had someone in school to talk to about personal problems. That’s an awful lot of students with something to say and no one to listen. 

Young people in BBBS School-Based mentoring programs show an increase in academic performance, feel more competent academically, are less likely to skip school and feel that that they would attend and finish college. That’s a lot of impact for two hours a month!

Those bi-monthly visits DO make an impact: Littles in our Beyond School Walls programs show an increase in academic performance, are less likely to skip school and feel that they will be more likely to attend and finish college. What an impact!

Professionally trained staff from BBBS are on site to answer any questions you have, provide activity ideas, and offer feedback to each "Big" and "Little" in the program.

"I have known my Big Brother for 2 years. Since I met George I haven't been shy meeting new people. My Big Brother helps me do my homework. He tells me to do the right thing. The best thing about George is that he's a great guy and cool to hang out with. I would never want to leave George. He's like my real brother."
--Little Brother Raquon
