National Mentoring Month - 31 Mentors in 31 Days

January 7: Ron

Ron, a businessman, has dedicated a lot of his precious time to his Little Brother, Horacio. He’s been an awesome role model to Horacio for the past four years. They enjoy spending time together, sharing meals together, and spending quality time talking about “man” things like girls, physical development, avoiding risky situations, shaving, etc. Kids grow up so quickly, but this is especially true for Littles who are often affected by the environment they live in. Ron has been by Horacio’s side during tough decisions. Ron’s time and dedication to his Little Brother create the confidence Horacio needs to make good decisions about his life. Ron has said about his Little Brother, “I see him growing both physically and mentally every time we meet. It’s also made me a better person, which makes me the luckiest man in the world.”

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.
