Southern Door youth have the opportunity to be involved in the Big Brothers Big Sister program. Becoming a Big Brother/Sister or a Little provides students with a role model, help for school, and a new friend. This program is lead by Mrs. O’Rourke, a valued member of the Southern Door community.
This is my third year being involved with BBBS. Over the years, my Little and I have grown very close. I feel that this program is an excellent outlet for youth in our community to have a stable and healthy friendship. I have learned so much from my little and am still learning. I meet with my Little during one study hall, a week, in school.
For the holiday season, the BBBS Program invites its Bigs and Littles to ring bells for the Salvation Army, make holiday cards, go bowling, and attend a Holiday Party.
