Big Brothers Big Sisters recruiting mentors with ‘Big Skate’


Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ocean State (BBBSOS) will hold a special, one-of-a-kind volunteer recruiting event to help find “Big Brother” and “Big Sister” mentors for its waiting list of over 100 boys and girls.

“The Big Skate” will be held on Saturday, March 29 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Boss Ice Arena on the campus of the University of Rhode Island. The event will not only welcome current “matches” from its program, but will also seek to introduce potential new mentors to the power and impact of mentoring a child. Many of the boys and girls from the agency’s waiting list will be present and participating in the event.

People interested in mentoring a child or donating to support the program, can contact BBBSOS at 921-2434, or log on to the organization’s website at
