Recruiting Defenders of Potential - A Blog for Impact NWA

The local blog, Impact NWA recently reached out to Big Brothers Big Sisters and asked to write a guest blog post about the urgent need for volunteers in the NWA. We are so thankful for their support and help in getting our message out to potential volunteers.

In October 2019, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America released a new PSA aimed at recruiting volunteers. With nearly 30,000 kids across the nation waiting on a mentor, now is the time to volunteer. In Northwest Arkansas, those numbers vary month to month but there are currently 60 children waiting on their mentor.

Listen To Our Podcast!

On a cold and rainy January evening, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Arkansas held its inaugural volunteer appreciation dinner for our Siloam Springs Bigs. We think it’s important to thank our volunteers, who are the backbone of this organization but also to take time to break bread together and listen to them as they share their mentoring journey with us.
