The first day of Spring has come and gone. The days are becoming longer. The birds are chirping and the flowers are beginning to bloom. We are expecting new babies here on the farm. We are patiently waiting for our Opening Day, April 7th. This time of year brings so much excitement, so much life. It is such an exciting time at the farm. We are preparing our gardens, eager to get our hands dirty. Most thrilling of all is that youth from all around our community will begin to join us. We are so EXCITED for our Mentoring Program called "Build ME Up". We are looking for for positive adult mentors who can commit 3-4 hours a month. That's only 3-4 time a month, as our mentoring sessions are only one hour. During that one hour you will work with the child your are paired with, doing an activity that is provided from our curriculum, small chore around the farm, and spend quality time with our 4 legged mentors. Most of the children that enroll in "Build ME UP" need some positive guidance from positive adults whose they can learn to trust. "EVERY kid is ONE caring adult away from becoming a success story. -Josh Shipp As Spring brings so many new and exciting things, we are hoping to bring four new mentors into BBYF family. We will be hosting a Mentor Orientation on April 11th. If you are interested in learning more about Building Bridges Youth Farm and our "Build ME Up" Mentoring Program or would like to attend the Mentor Orientation, please contact Kira Blair at firstname.lastname@example.org
