National Mentoring Month - 31 Mentors in 31 Days

January 30: Zeina


Zeina became a Big Sister to give back to her community, make a difference, and be a role model to a child in need. She knew when she first got involved that her mark of a successful match would simply be if the child is happy and they stay friends for a long time. She and her Little Sister, Julie are about to celebrate three years of friendship and they’re going strong! Her Little sister is 17, so Zeina is very involved in helping her with homework and studying. But they still have plenty of fun, like chatting over coffee, dinner out, and bowling! Zeina was so passionate about BBBS that she recently became a board member and is a supporter in more ways than one!

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.
