The Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) retreat teaches students the importance of civic responsibility and leadership through working with at-risk youth. Each student with be one-on-one and mentoring a child to overcome the many challenges he or she may face while growing up. Students converse about child development, effects of socioeconomic status on our community, and the mission of BBBS of America. Possible activities students may do with his/her “littles” includes: playing games, creating crafts, going to an amusement park, and just getting to know one another! This is an excellent introduction to the BBBS Club on campus!
Each retreat will also have the opportunity to mingle with other retreats and participate in larger group activities and programs.
