Big Brothers Big Sisters, an affiliate of the Voluntary Action Center, provides youth, ages 6-18, with top-flight mentoring to help them succeed in life.

The Lackawanna County Commissioners saluted the agency’s work, which for over 100 years, has provided children with professionally supported one-on-one monitored matches. The organization conducts a variety of special events to generate funds to operate the program and to underwrite social and recreational activities.
