BBBS Partners With Local Barbershops for Real Men Mentor Campaign
Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of the Midlands (BBBSomaha.org/volunteer) is continuing its partnership with local barbershops for the Real Men Mentor – Barbershop Campaign. This campaign is designed to encourage men to become mentors for the boys on BBBS’s waiting list. There are currently 75+ boys, ages 7 to 14, in Omaha waiting to be matched with a mentor.
If you want to help put the next generation of young men in our community on the right path, volunteer to be a mentor today! Since all it takes is 4 hours per month and matching is based on interests, being a mentor (also known as a “Big”) is as easy as being yourself. As a Big, you and your “Little” can spend time doing things you both enjoy, like shooting hoops, going to a movie, playing video games, or getting your hair cut together! Participating barbershops are: Arlan’s Barbershop (3157 Farnam St.), Evoluxion Barbershop (2409 M St.), Fourstar Barbershop (2426 Cornhusker Rd.), and Lyle’ Stylez and Cutz (318 S 72nd St.).
