The BBBS Club serves to help our local chapter, BBBS of Oconee, to fulfill its mission of helping children in need of additional guidance, to maximize self-worth and broaden horizons for growth, through professionally supported, one-to-one mentoring relationships with volunteers. Along with planning activities for the un-matched Littles, they help support the fundraising efforts of BBBS and encourage students to become Bigs.
