National Mentoring Month - 31 Mentors in 31 Days

January 11: Kent

Kent and his Little Bro, Jared, are a newer pair, but Kent is not new to being a Big Brother. Jared is his third! They’re already having a blast playing board games, tetherball, and soccer together. Kent has been helping Jared with his soccer skills so he can try out for his school team. With Kent’s help, Jared works very hard at school so he can become a successful student and go to college one day. His goal is to become a doctor or an astronaut one day so he can buy his mom a house and a car and take her and his siblings to cool places like Circus Circus and Wild Island. Kent's dedication to mentoring is incredible!

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.
