What we Learned...

From the research of Big Brothers and Big Sisters Foundation, we learned what a difference becoming a mentor can make for a child. Besides the fact that you can get a scholarship, you can really help a child who needs the encouragement, or just a good friend. This program doesn’t just help a child, but it helps the person mentoring them by giving them the satisfaction of helping someone who needed it. You’ll be able to guide them in the right direction and changing their life forever.Slide13
