“Big” Volunteer – Application Deadline Extended

Paulina Baltazar – September 27, 2019

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Franklin County is looking for additional student volunteers and has extended the application deadline to Monday, October 7. The program pairs junior students at Deerfield Academy in 1:1 “matches” with children from the local community. Students spend time here on campus every Friday evening from 6:00 pm – 8:15 pm with their “big.” Activities include; walking around campus together, eating in the dining hall, playing basketball in the gym, dancing in the dance studio, and throwing footballs and frisbee’s around outside. It is a great way to help a child by providing the friendship and guidance of a positive role model, but mostly it is just a lot of fun!
