Big Brother/Big Sister

Give your child a Mentor! Free and fun! Simple friendship. A mentor helps kids improve in school and avoid drugs and delinquent behaviors. It boosts self-confidence, decreases depression and helps deal with bullying. Children must be 6 to 16 years of age and must WANT to be a part of the program.


Please contact Mrs. Gutierrez if you would like your son or daughter to be a part of this great opportunity.
