Last Weeks Program

Nancy Kosloski of Big Brothers & Sisters of Orange County gave an interesting breakdown of BB&S of Orange County, consisting of various programs designed to provide a big brother

or sister with a mentor to help cope with a variety of problems encountered by today’s youths. There are many volunteers ready to provide assistance where needed.

Nancy provided handouts, which described some of the services available. (The organization is mentoring in the Highland Falls Middle School.) Very informative program.
