Big Brother, Big Sister

At TU, there are about a bazillion (or so it seems) clubs that one can be involved with on campus. But there are also a lot of off campus volunteer opportunities. One that I am involved with is Big Brother, Big Sister. This is an organization geared toward mentoring and helping out young students. TU partners with an elementary school about two blocks from campus called Kendall-Whittier. (Fun fact, it is actually the largest elementary school in Oklahoma! Way cool!) Each Big Brother or Sister is assigned a Little Brother or Sister and gets to meet with them for an hour a week and just spend time with them. My Little Sister and I have done things from reading books together to, well, painting pictures of the cat in the hat! The time commitment is small, the elementary school is easily within walking distance, and the program is definitely worth it!
