Members of the West Point Big Brothers Big Sisters Club visited the Highland Falls Intermediate School (HFIS) on March 21, 2023, in Highland Falls, N.Y. Cadets meet with HFIS students once a week for about an hour to either play at the playground or do mentorship activities like developing goals and character development. Occasionally, cadets will take the students bowling or conduct physical activity in Arvin Gym as a trip section. Cadets inspire the students at HFIS at West Point to achieve their full potential and better their future lives.
The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters is to build and support mentoring relationships between cadets and local students to ignite the most significant possible futures for both. West Point makes the future leaders of the Army, and by matching a cadet mentor, a “Big,” with an HFIS youth, otherwise known as a “Little,” they extend their impact by inspiring the next generation of leaders and giving back to the Highland Falls community.
