WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — January is National Mentoring Month which encourages youth mentoring across the country.
In our area, the Cape Fear Volunteer Center sponsors the Big Buddy Program. Organizers recruit, train, and match volunteers with an at risk child in Brunswick, Pender or New Hanover counties.
Each week big buddies spend one-on-one time with their little buddies for about two hours, giving them guidance while exposing them to different life experiences.
The Cape Fear Volunteer offers other opportunities to give back to the community too.
