Come join us at our 3rd Annual Winding Roads Country Festival on Saturday, September 22, 2018 as we celebrate mentoring the children and youth in our community! There will be traditional BBQ grub, cash bar, silent auction, raffle and live music from some of Country Music biggest stars all under a big tent in Port Perry.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Durham (BBBSND) has fostered thousands of positive mentoring relationships with struggling children in our community for over 40 years. Our mentees come from all walks of life, including low-income to high-income families and families with or without a mom, dad, or both. Our goal is for our mentees to come out of their respective program feeling more confident, with a positive attitude, with an urge to give back to the community, and most importantly: a lifelong friendship with their mentor.
The results of our mentoring programs varies from child to child, but most mentors have reported their mentees are becoming more active in their community by joining clubs, sports teams, feel more motivated at school and parents report improvement in attitude. We believe the impact will be felt throughout the community as these children/youth become more responsible and active in community life.
We hope to see you there.
