Charles City, Iowa – A mentoring program has been in place in Floyd County for many years. The Big Brother, Big Sister Program has recently replaced the Caring Connections Mentoring Program.
Program manager Meagan Wrecsics talks about what the Big Brother, Big Sister program is all about.
The program, geared for youth ages 6 – 14, matches children with adults who spend time with the youth.
The program has replaced the original Caring Connections Mentoring Program. Wrecsics explains.
Wresics says there is still a significant need for mentors for the program.
The process to become a “Big” or a mentor, is fairy simple but does require some training, according to Wrescics.
A Start Something Big breakfast will be held on January 18th. Ashley Ludemann, development director for the Big Brother, Big Sister Northeast Iowa Region explains.
