And last, but certainly not least, Rod Lee and staff at Treasure Lanes need some serious love!  Without their generosity and dedicated support, Bowl For Kids’ Sake could not happen!  For 22 YEARS, Treasure Lanes has graciously hosted this event.  With gratitude and gratefulness, a wholehearted THANK YOU!!!

We encourage you to support the businesses and the people in this community that support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Park and Sweet Grass Counties. Together, we are building stronger, more resilient communities, one LITTLE community member at a time!!

We are looking for volunteers who wish to make their community stronger and more resilient, one LITTLE community member at a time!

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Park County (BBBS) is currently enrolling youth and recruiting volunteers (high school students & adults in the community) for 4 site-based, one-to-one mentoring programs.

These programs have a proven track record for improving children’s self-confidence and academic performance, and for helping kids stay off drugs and alcohol and away from violence. In addition, the high school mentors benefit from being a positive role model in a child’s life, and learn the value of contributing to their community, specifically to those in need. BBBS’ mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported, one-to-one relationships that change lives for the better, forever. BBBS’ vision is that all children achieve success in life, and these programs are free and open to everyone…

“Class Act” is a mentoring-for-credit program matching Park High students with elementary aged children at East Side School. The high school mentors work with their “Little” in the classroom 4 days per week, and on the 5th day attend a “mentor-training” class taught by BBBS staff.

 “Middle School Mentoring” is peer-mentoring between a Park High student and an 8th grade student at either St. Mary’s or Sleeping Giant Middle School. These matches will meet once a week, and ideally continue for 2 years, so the High School Mentor can act as a Peer Mentor/Advisor to the incoming freshman.

 “Lunch Buddies” meet over the lunch hour, once a week. The high school “Bigs” walk to East Side to eat lunch with their “Little” and be a supportive friend.

“LINKS After School Program” help a child with their homework, read or play games 1 day/week for 1 hour.  (Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday 3:45-4:45 p.m.)

All match activities are supervised by either a teacher or BBBS staff. Last year, teachers reported that participating children had much better self-confidence, a much better attitude toward school, better attendance and academic performance, and better relationships with adults and their peers.

If you want to inquire about volunteering or if you have an 8th grade student, a teen at Park High, or a child at East Side School that would benefit from participating in one of these programs, please contact Big Brothers Big Sisters at 222-1930.

START SOMETHING this FALL, start a new friendship, start making a difference in the life of a child.  If you are interested in more information on how to “get started,” then stop in the office, call us at: 222-1930 or email us: !
