Big Brothers Big Sisters

Contact: Ms. Colleen McDermott or Mr. Jim Darr

Big Brothers Big Sisters has helped kids reach their full potential in the Clinton County community since 2000.  Mater Dei Catholic High School students have the opportunity to serve as a volunteer and friend to a child at an elementary school in Aviston, Beckemeyer, Breese or Germantown.

To be eligible to serve as a volunteer, students must be a junior or senior.  In addition, students must commit to visiting their “little” one hour per week during the school year (visits occur during designated study hall periods).  Finally, because all visits take place at the elementary schools, volunteers are required to provide their own transportation to and from the elementary school and Mater Dei Catholic High School.

Students interested in volunteering may contact our Big Brothers Big Sisters coordinator Ms. Colleen McDermott or Mr. Jim Darr.  All volunteers must complete an application, complete an interview and attend a training session before meeting with their “little.”
