There’s a Mentor in Everyone. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Indiana is excited to announce its spring campaign that will run from April 22nd to July 22nd to raise awareness for the need of mentors in our community and to recruit 200 adult mentors in 90 days.

On every Friday during the 90-day campaign, committee members, advocates, board, and staff members will wear newly branded black t-shirts to promote awareness of the campaign and to open up a dialogue about the urgent need for mentors. Each promoter will be given a “Big Brothers Big Sisters Recruitment Kit” consisting of a shirt, conversation cards, and ink pens to help advance the campaign and recruit volunteers.

Right now, there are over 500 children on the waitlist to be matched with a mentor through Big Brothers Big Sisters, and an additional 300 waiting to get on that waitlist.
