National Mentoring Month - 31 Mentors in 31 Days

January 2: Sharon


Sharon is a retired Big Sister who has been matched with her Little Sister Coree since she was in Kindergarten! They have been in each other’s lives for a whopping eight years! They love the outdoors, gardening, volunteering together, going to community events, and going to the bookstore where they enjoy having a relaxing time while having a sweet drink. Sharon truly wishes to have a great journey with only one outcome: “helping her Little Sister, Coree, have a successful life.” Sharon’s dedication as a Big Sister doesn’t end there – she is also a Big Sister at one of our school sites, and she recently celebrated her first match anniversary with her site-based Little Sister, Yajaira. Sharon shows constant love and dedication to both of her Little Sisters.

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.
