National Mentoring Month - 31 Mentors in 31 Days

 

January 27: Jordan

Jordan was matched in November 2012 with Little Brother Jerry. They both have a lot of energy and an interest in basketball. Jordan was excited to volunteer at his old elementary school! Jordan and Jerry have been meeting regularly ever since they were first introduced. Their activities often include basketball and playing other games outside. Jordan said he has seen Jerry mature the course of their match and it’s obvious that Jerry really enjoys their time together. Jerry shows it in cute ways, for example he brought extra Oreos in his lunch one day because he knew Jordan was coming. Jordan’s consistency as a Big has been great for Jerry, and he’s become involved with the agency in more ways than one! Jordan has been vocal at events, sharing his personal story to encourage others to become mentors. He is actively involved in the Young Professionals Committee and serving as the group’s current President.

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.
