National Mentoring Month - 31 Mentors in 31 Days

January 22: Katie


Katie came to us when she was just 18, ready to make a difference in the life of a child! She grew up with two sisters, so she had what it takes to be a Big Sister. She and her Little Sister, Riley, have tried lots of new things together, but they have just as much fun hanging out and sharing a meal. They have been friends for more than three years now, and it’s clear to us that Katie loves Riley like a sister. Even when the going gets tough, these two are there for each other – through thick and thin! Katie always says, “I became a Big Sister to change a child’s life, but Riley has really changed mine, giving me a whole new perspective!”

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.
