National Mentoring Month - 31 Mentors in 31 Days

January 3: Gina & Brian


Gina and Brian are what we call a Partners Match, which is a great way for couples to volunteer together! Especially for Little Brother, Isaac, who doesn’t otherwise have a male role model in his life. This trio has been together for about six months, and is building a great relationship. Isaac looks up to both of his Bigs, but he’s especially close with Brian. Every conversation they’ve had seems to have a huge impact on Isaac, and he really takes Brian’s advice to heart – Like when he needed to help his grandmother around the house with the chores! Brian as also said that Isaac follows him like a shadow. Big Brother will cross his legs at the movie theater, and then Little Brother will cross his as well. Brian and Gina are such great role models for their Little Brother!

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.
