Big Brothers Big Sisters

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Carolinas – Cabarrus County (BBBSCC) will host a free fraternity and friends mixer for members of Alpha Phi Alpha, Omega Psi Phi, and Kappa Alpha Psi fraternities this week at Cabarrus Brewing Company

During the event, guests will learn about the national Mentoring Brothers in Action Initiative and how to become a mentor.

BBBSCC is in need of African-American male mentors. The Mentoring Brothers in Action Initiative is a national collaborative partnership with historically black fraternities with a goal to engage more African-American men in fraternal, social, faith-based and professional organizations to get involved in one-to-one mentoring to change the odds for African American boys.

The free event will be held on Thursday, Sept. 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the brewery, which is located at 329 McGill Avenue Northwest in Concord.
