The Apoyo Program: a•po•yo m. (soporte) support
The most meaningful friendships in life need a little extra care.
Big Brothers Big Sisters has partnered with Washington County Mental Health Services to introduce you to a child who is currently receiving mental health services and is in need of an additional friend. The children already have a professional support system in place. All they need is time with you to participate in life’s fun adventures for a few hours, a couple of times per month. As an Apoyo volunteer, we ask that you meet with your Little Brother or Sister for at least two years. But, since our volunteers and children have so much fun, most of our friendships last longer.
If you live in Washington County, consider becoming an Apoyo Big Brother or Sister. Be sure to indicate that you want to be an Apoyo volunteer.
