National Mentoring Month may have ended, but the third annual 100 Men in 100 Days campaign is just getting started. The recruitment effort from Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle focuses on providing mentors for the more than 200 boys on the organization’s waiting list.
100 Men in 100 Days is a way to encourage men to discover the benefits of becoming a mentor, as well as an opportunity to increase community awareness of the nonprofit. The theme for this year’s campaign is, “Changing children's lives for the better forever.”
Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle, which matches children ages 6 to 14 with an adult volunteer, provides support to more than 1,000 children in Durham, Wake and Orange counties every year.
The campaign was launched on January 21 and will continue until April 30, with its first kick-off event happening in February. Keep an eye on BBBST's website and Facebook page for updates and more information.
