Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Metropolitan Chicago is seeking youths and mentors interested in participating in a new mentoring program launching this spring in Forest Park.
BBBS seeks mentors 18 or older who can commit to mentoring a young person in fifth, sixth or seventh grade for at least one year.
The program has space for 20 mentor-student pairs.
All 20 groups will meet for mentoring 6-7:30 p.m. every other Wednesday at the Howard Mohr Community Center, 7640 Jackson Blvd. in Forest Park. Activities will be designed by a BBBS professional and will be carried out individually among each pair.
