National Mentoring Month - 31 Mentors in 31 Days

January 6: Debbi

Debbi became a mentor because she knows what a difference having a mentor in her own life has made. Debbi and her Little Sister, Sarynity are only about six months in to their match, but Sarynity has said, “My Big is just like me!” so they are getting along great! They’re both creative, and love scrapbooking. Sarynity looks forward to the future, so Debbi encouraged her to start a “Dream Box” to fill with objects that represent the future she wants for herself. Sarynity has even said that when she grows up, she wants to be a Big Sister, 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.
