HAPPY NEW YEAR! We’ve got nearly 800 boys on our waiting list for a Big Brother and many of those boys will wait for up to two years before they’re matched. Why? Because we simply don’t have enough men who believe they can be a positive influence in the life of a child. But we know that if one cares about kids, that person will make a wonderful role model. So, we are challenging ourselves and our community to find 100 men – in only 100 days – who will become mentors to 100 children.
Will you help us?
The need for male role models is ever growing as our community faces economic challenges and families struggle to get by. It might not seem like a lot but spending one or two hours a week with a young man can make a huge difference between him growing up into a life of success or a life of poverty.
Below is a short little testimonial from a current Big Brother about how the littlest things can have a big impact.
