George is a teacher and a veteran and he is a great Big Brother, who just wants to be a positive male role model to kids who need it. He was recently matched with his second Little, Julian, and the pair is already off to a great start! George, who is fluent in three languages, is helping Julian learn Italian. It is clear Julian really looks up to George, and he even wants to go into the military when he grows up, just like his Big Brother. George and Julian were recently featured in the Sparks Tribune for National Mentoring Month, as they both live in Sparks! Read it here!

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.
