A part-time staff member from Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) assists Penn State Beaver students, a.k.a. "Bigs," in partnering with "Littles" from the community. This program offers a wonderful way for students to mentor children, ages 6 to 14, as well as give their time and talent to the community.

A BBBS staff member transports the children to campus where each of our students spends about three hours per week with his/her "Little." Our students assist the children by helping them study, play board games, shoot pool, attend campus athletic events, and talking with them one-on-one.

To become a "Big," interested students must complete an interview process. Inquiries about BBBS should be directed to the Student Activities Office, room 115-A, Student Union Building (SUB).
