County needs Big Buddies

Delaware Opportunities seeks volunteers

Delhi — The Delaware Opportunities Big Buddy Program is seeking adult volunteers in Delaware and Otsego counties. Local little buddies ages 5 to 14, are looking to be matched with an adult role model who will serve as a big buddy. Big buddies are asked to spend four to eight hours each month with their little buddy for a minimum of one year engaging in mutually agreed upon activities.

Eight to 10 times per year, the program holds group activities where big and little buddies get together for bowling, movies, sporting events, hiking, museums, community involvement and more. The activities are structured to encompass at least one educational, one cultural, one community service and one recreation event. To learn more about the program or to volunteer, contact Jaclyn Brownell at 607.746.1746 or email bigbuddy@delop.org.
