Big Brothers Big Sisters training Tuesday in St. JosephPublished 10:36pm Thursday, August 25, 2011
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berrien and Cass has scheduled an In-Service Training Meeting for its Big Brothers and Big Sisters, both community-based and site-based, on Tuesday from 5 to 7 p.m. at Lakeland Regional Medical Center’s Community Meeting Room at 1234 Napier Ave. in St. Joseph.
The staff will present the Child Safety and Youth Protection Guidelines and Ground Rules, guidelines which will help the mentor volunteers develop a healthy relationship with their Littles and will help them teach the children in their care about appropriate boundaries as well as how to build skills which will protect them from violence while allowing them to recognize and trust the caring adults in their lives.
BBBS also welcomes prospective volunteers to this training, as long as they preregister by calling 684-1100 ext. 3 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is a United Way-funded program.
