BBBS Jefferson Quarterly Group Activity

National Mentoring Month Presentation

Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Jefferson, Elk, & McKean Counties, in conjunction with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Clearfield County, celebrated National Mentoring Month with a presentation at the DuBois Mall on January 9, 2016. Attending the event were BBBS matches from all four counties as well as being open to the general public. Guest speaker Todd Parisi, a retired Marine Sergeant Major from St. Marys, spoke to attendees about “Paying It Forward”.

Following the presentation BBBS Matches enjoyed participating in planned activities. The Bigs and Littles traced each other on a large sheet of paper and then colored it in to resemble themselves. These drawings were then hung on the mall walls. Displayed around the drawings were thank you notes from the general public written in appreciation of mentors. Matches also enjoyed making (and eating) edible snowmen made out of fruit.
