CSI:NY Star Visits Danville

Posted:

Danville, VA - Students at the Danville Boys and Girls Club had a special visitor Tuesday. CSI: New York actor Hill Harper stopped to speak to kids there. Harper is the national spokesperson for Big Brothers Big Sisters and an advocate for mentoring programs.

Being a former Big Brother himself, he sees these programs as the best tools available for childhood development. 

"Mentoring is the number one way we can deal with issues with regard to our young people. Everyone's always talking about government funding... is there money for this, is there money for that. One on one volunteers that show up at Boys and Girls Club, that show up at Big Brothers Big Sisters, that doesn't cost anybody anything but time," said Harper 

Harper also spoke at the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research in Danville. Later he kicked-off the "African Americans for Obama" event at the Danville Obama headquarters.
