Blackville School Students Become Teen Mentors

Organizers from Big Brothers Big Sisters / Boys & Girls Club of Miramichi were at Blackville School earlier this week setting up new matches for their Teen Mentoring program.

Each week, these dedicated high school students will spend time building a friendship with their Mentee through playing games and sports, hitting the playground, and making crafts!

Teen Mentoring is a friendship-based, non-academic program that matches high school students with boys and girls in grade K-5, for one hour a week. A typical volunteer is a caring responsible teen who is in high school and has an interest in being a positive role model and friend to a child. Teen Mentors also provide someone to talk to and share the experiences of growing up.

The Teen Mentoring program is currently offered at Blackville School and James M. Hill in Miramichi.
