With the Thanksgiving holiday upon us we’re thankful for mentors that have impacted our lives in one way or another. Did someone help guide your professional career? Did a coach, a teacher or a friend help motivate you to pursue your dreams? Mentors can have such a positive impact on a young person’s life path. Lets share our appreciation for mentors as we talk about supporting our own Latino youth today.
Please join Big Brothers Big Sisters, Latino Bigs and Latina Mom Bloggers as we focus on propelling our Latino youth to achieve their potential and discuss how YOU can become a Latino Big. Latino Bigs will be on hand to share their current stories of supporting a ‘little’. LatinoBigs change the lives of children. Compared to children not in our program, Latino Littles are LESS likely to skip school, use drugs and begin drinking alcohol. Children matched in Big Brothers Big Sisters programs maintain or improve outcome areas of educational success, avoidance of risky behaviors and socio-emotional competency. Latino Bigs participants are also more likely to graduate and be prepared for employment.
If not us, who? If not now, when? Volunteer Now.
