Rocky Point NY - May 29, 2014 - On Monday, May 19th, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker recognized local students who participated in the North Shore Youth Council’s Big Buddy/Little Buddy program at the VFW Hall in Rocky Point. The Big Buddy/Little Buddy program unites high school volunteers with younger students for whom they act as role models and mentors. The Big Buddies teach their Little Buddies about self-esteem, responsibility, and motivation in a friendly and supportive environment.
 
“Thank you to the North Shore Youth Council for offering such a valuable program to our community,” said Legislator Anker. “The Big Buddy/Little Buddy program allows our high school students to take on a leadership role, helping them to prepare for college and future employment.”
