If you’re looking to kick off the new year with a tradition of giving back, Big Brothers Big Sisters could be for you.
The organization gives volunteers a chance to meet and mentor kids who could use a good friend role model in their lives.
Alida Tallman with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas said about 1,500 volunteers each year spend a few days a month hanging out with kids signed up for the program. They do anything from going to the lake, a baseball game to baking cookies.
A commitment of about one year is asked of the Big Brothers Big Sisters volunteers.
