National Mentoring Month - 31 Mentors in 31 Days

January 24: Amy


Amy, a pathologist at Renown Medical center, has been a Big Sister to Rosa for more than four years! The friendship they’ve built over the years has given them the opportunity to continue learning from each other and to work together on Rosa’s academic goals while having a great time together. Amy cheers Rosa on through sports events and academic accomplishments. They enjoy the outdoors, community events and group match activities; but the best activity is simply spending time together. Rosa is currently in her junior year in high school and is part of the International Baccalaureate program. She wants to go into the medical field in the future; just like her Big Sister. One of the great things Amy has said about her experience as a Big Sister is “Watching Rosa grow into an amazing you woman and I knowing that I had a part in helping her mature in to the beautiful young lady she is becoming.”

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.
