National Mentoring Month - 31 Mentors in 31 Days

January 1: Mike

 

Mike and his Little Brother, Billy have been matched for four years. Mike loves being there for Billy, as if he were really his Big Brother! He really enjoys going the extra mile and taking on the “Big Brother” role by helping Billy buy things that Billy may feel too embarrassed to buy with his grandmother – like deodorant – no matter how much Billy loves his grandmother! Mike also recently threw a big 13th birthday party at the bowling alley for Billy. Billy’s best friend came, as did several of Mike’s closest friends, who all have gotten to know Billy too.

In honor of National Mentoring Month, we are featuring 31 of our awesome mentors in 31 days! Mentoring a child in your community is easy - if you have an hour a week, you can make a huge difference in the life of a child. Anything is possible! 81% of former Littles surveyed agree their Big gave them hope & changed their perspective of what they thought possible.
