Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Mass/Metrowest, Inc. is preparing to launch expanded mentoring programs in 2015 that will serve children in the towns of Southbridge, Sturbridge and Charlton.
The agency, which is headquartered in Worcester, MA, currently serves nearly 1,200 children in 40 communities throughout Central Massachusetts and Metrowest Boston. In 2015, the agency plans to hire a Program Specialist to focus exclusively on matching adult volunteer mentors with at-risk children in southern Worcester County communities including Southbridge, Sturbridge and Charlton.
In addition to recruiting more adult volunteers who will meet with their child mentees weekly, the new hire will also work to launch after-school mentoring programs in both Southbridge and Webster in early 2015.
Table 3 Restaurant Group has donated their new function facility, Table 3 Chefs & Catering, at 420 Main Street in Sturbridge, as well as refreshments, for a special Mentoring Matters Reception on Tuesday evening, October 7th from 5PM until 6:30PM. At the event, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Mass/Metrowest will provide more details on the new initiative and the Nichols College partnership. Those interested in attending the reception or for more information are invited to email John Slattery at email@example.com.
