The new year is a perfect time to give back and becoming a mentor is one the best investments you can make in the future of an at-risk child. Join WGRZ Ch. 2 during National Mentoring Month and invest in the future of a local child by becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County. You can show you care just by listening and sharing your experience. Children involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County show improvement in self-confidence, have a more positive attitude toward school and are promoted to the next grade level.

Right now there is a need for volunteer mentors, especially Big Brothers. To learn more visit or call 716-873-5833. Click here for a description of volunteer opportunities right here in Erie County.
