The Jefferson Warren G. Harding Big Brother Big Sister program kicked off the 2019-2020 school year Wednesday, Sept. 25, at Warren’s Jefferson PK-8 School as part of Buddy Up Day.
Dozens of students from Warren G. Harding High School are mentoring third-grade students at Jefferson throughout the year. The Bigs/Littles will continue to meet monthly throughout the school year.
The program kick off was held in conjunction with Start With Hello Week – a program that teaches students to make a difference with their peers in simple, fun and impactful ways. They take small but powerful actions to promote connectedness and inclusion, and to identify and help lonely students who are showing signs of social isolation. Jefferson joined thousands of schools and youth organizations across the country for Start With Hello Week.
