National Mentoring Month - 31 Mentors in 31 Days

January 16: Shawnice

Shawnice has always loved working with kids, which is what drove her to become involved with BBBS. She and her Little Brother, Marco, have a very strong friendship, and have been matched almost three years! Shawnice is certainly busy as a med student at the University, but has always found it important to be there for her Little Brother, especially because their friendship is equally important to him! Both are sports fans, so they love attending Aces and Bighorns games, as well as playing games, going to the library, visiting museums, or just working on homework together. Marco says the best thing about his Big Sister is knowing that she will always be there for him.

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.
