Boys and Girls Club seeking mentors

Jenna Bordelon

MEDIA DISTRICT NORTH -- Seven hundred kids need a little help with

their reading, homework and athletic skills. They are looking to the

community to provide that help.

The Boys and Girls Club of Burbank is hoping to find dedicated

volunteers who are willing to donate at least one hour per week to

helping an at-risk child.

Mentors are needed to improve the reading skills of kids from 7 to 18.

Tutors are wanted to assist kids with homework after school.

If you like to watch sports on television, why not show the kids how

it is done, by coaching flag football in the fall, basketball in the

winter or soccer in the spring.

"They're good kids," program director Norberto Oropez said. "They just

need a little guidance."

Volunteers will work in the afternoons after 3 p.m. The club is also

searching for a designer to help them it launch a Web site.

For information, call 842-9333.
