Big Brothers Big Sisters

The Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation provided a grant to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ocean County in order to provide an after-school mentoring program for students in Toms River.  Walnut Street Elementary School and Toms River High School North were selected to participate.  Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 that are involved within the program were interviewed and matched witha 'Big' from High School North based on common interests, life experiences, and personalities in order to develop long-lasting relationships that can support both our 'Bigs' and our 'Littles' in making positive choices to avoid risky behaviors, improve academic success, build self-confidence, and improve social skills.
