Big Brothers Big Sisters
Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) is a partnership with the community to mentor youth. Community members are the heart of the program – school personnel, human services agencies, churches, businesses, high school student volunteer mentors, college student volunteer mentors and adult volunteer mentors. PEACE, Inc. has two BBBS mentoring programs – each based in community and school. Children ages six through 12 are recruited through outreach efforts and referrals from partner agencies. The community-based program recruits mentors from the local community, while the School-Based program mentors are high school and college students.
