National Mentoring Month - 31 Mentors in 31 Days

January 25: Rick


Rick is businessman who has been matched with his Little Brother, Jose, for six years. Their friendship has grown stronger over the years with consistency and honesty, as friendships tend to do! They love playing football and soccer and one of their annual events is watching the Super Bowl together. Rick enjoys going to Jose’s soccer games so he can cheer him up and calm him down whenever the things heat up during the game. Rick has been a great friend and the most important role model Jose ever had. Rick has played an important role in his school involvement and is proud of Jose whenever he makes good choices and continues motivating him on becoming a better student. Jose is happy to have a mentor with whom he can talk about “man” things and to spent time with.

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.
