In observance of National Mentoring Month in January, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Miami is teaming up with the Miami HEAT to help elevate awareness and give Miamians opportunities to become mentors for local youths at risk. BBBS is a nonprofit organization supporting at-risk children through adult mentor relationships.
National Mentoring Month was created in 2002 by the Harvard School of Public Health and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership, to focus national attention on the need for mentors, as well as how individuals, businesses, government agencies, schools, faith communities and nonprofits can work together to increase the number of mentors to help ensure positive outcomes for youths.
During the 7:30 pm games at the AmericanAirlines Arena on January 20, 23, and 27, tables will be set up at the following locations to inform potential volunteers of the various programming alternatives available:
â€¢ January 20 (Oklahoma City Thunder): Section 115 (Inner Wall)
â€¢ January 23 (Indiana Pacers): Section 102 (Inner Wall)
â€¢ January 27 (Milwaukee Bucks): Section 102 (Inner Wall)
The arena is located at 601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami, FL 33132.
These activities are part of the organizationâ€™s â€œMan Driveâ€ to recruit more male volunteers. While all volunteers are welcomed, BBBS is particularly interested in male volunteers at this time in order to help reduce the waiting list of boys in need of mentors.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
