Happy August! I have worked for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Detroit for 4 years and have been privileged enough to meet so many fantastic people, in particular, the kids! As a mentoring organization, we work to match these great kids in the community with an awesome adult mentor as an extra support in their lives, as many of us have been fortunate to have. Having been here several years now, I have seen the positive influence one person can make and really believe mentoring works.
In addition to working here, I also participate in our program and have been matched with my Little Sister for almost 1 year and it has been such a great experience! We have a ton of fun trying a bunch of different restaurants, gardening, going to the zoo, the aquarium, the movies, museums and just hanging out. She is one of the most thoughtful people I have met and I can't wait to see the big things she is going to accomplish. With your help, we can make more matches like mine that truly impact people's lives (both kids AND volunteers)!
Please join us in this year's Quicken Loans Community Challenge for the month of August to raise the funds needed to match the over 300 youth on the wait list for mentors!
