Non-profit expands mentoring


DANVILLE — Big Brothers Big Sisters of Vermilion County and Danville High School are providing “Making The Grade” mentoring starting Tuesday to continue the momentum of the conferencing sessions that took place Oct. 1.

Adult mentors who are 21 years old or older will be matched with a Danville High School freshman. Mentors are assigned to one student and will meet with that student for one hour every Tuesday for the year at DHS. Time will be spent on academics and social supports. The program will be supervised by trained, professional staff.

Mentors can volunteer by calling 446-6601. Or e-mail Rose M. J. Henton at
