Happy New Year!
It’s hard to believe that we’re in mid January already! Time flies!
All I can say about 2012 is, what a year! With tragedies happening around the world it’s hard to look at the bright side of things. Luckily, we can make a change one person at a time, right in our community with the help of some amazing organizations like the one I’m going to tell you about today.
My Resolution For You
Big Brothers Big Sisters gives you the opportunity to make our future brighter. They’re looking for volunteers like you to donate just a little of your time to mentor a young boy or girl who is at risk. So many positive outcomes come from mentoring. As the “Littles” grow and learn, so do the “Bigs”. There is no special training or college degree that needed to become a caring mentor for a child. All you need is positivity.
When all the “traditional” resolutions start to dwindle, let this resolution remain in tact. Make a little room to mentor a child at risk. They deserve it, your community deserves it, and most of all our future depends on it.
“Big Brothers Big Sisters has made a big impact in communities across America for more than 100 years. Our organization holds itself accountable for children matched in our mentoring programs to achieve positive outcomes. We match adult volunteer mentors (Bigs) with children (Littles). Youth who participate our programs are more likely to avoid risky behaviors like skipping school, using illegal drugs or drinking underage.” – Latino Bigs Website
Remember, you don’t need any special degree to become a BIG all you need is a passion and respect to make a child’s future successful. Visit www.latinobigs.org or www.bigbrothersbigsisters.org for more information about volunteering as a ‘Big.’
