Big Brothers, Big Sisters

Our community needs more big bros and sisters - will you answer?

 

by John Vogt - July 21, 2017

On today’s broadcast, we visit with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Twin Tiers.

Even though the majority of us here in Tioga County are not rolling in big bucks, it’s still much easier to throw money at problems in our community than it is to give the most valuable thing that we have, TIME. But, in reality, it doesn’t take a huge investment of our time to change a kids life and light his or her pathway to a bright future. The rewards for you will turn out to be quite surprising. It very well may be one of the most fulfilling investments that you will ever make.

On this broadcast feature you will discover who Big Brothers Big Sisters is and how they are impacting our community for good. You’ll find out how it all works, how much of your time is involved and what a huge difference you can make in the life of a young person. And, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from some of the children involved with the program along with their Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Please take a few short moments and watch today’s broadcast.

Katie Hoeflein and Dick Heyler do an excellent job of explaining the program, and how it benefits young people. BBBS is a national program that’s actually making a positive difference. It is considered by many to be the premiere one on one mentoring program in the United States. BBBS has been changing the lives of children for a little more than one hundred years. They have been serving our region for about twenty-six years. BBBS began locally in Bradford County and expanded into Tioga County a few years ago. They are looking to grow their positive impact here. And, that’s where you come into the picture.

Here is their Mission Statement:
​​Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one to one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

Dick Heyler was a teacher for thirty years. He has seen a wide range of kids. Dick states, “there’s lot’s of kids out there who just need a mentor. They don’t need a disciplinarian; they need somebody who is there to go hunting, go hiking, go boating, watch a video, go to a ballgame, just to do something with a mentor.”

Many of your questions will be answered just by watching today’s feature. You can also contact Big Brothers Big Sisters by calling this number 570-265-3009 or 1-866-344-BIGS. Visit their website at www.bbbstwintiers.org.
