Why Should I Become a Mentor?
Being a BIG BROTHER, BIG SISTER, BIG COUPLE or BIG FAMILY is one of the most enjoyable and fulfilling things you will ever do. You have the opportunity to help shape a child’s future for the better by empowering him or her to achieve. The best part is, it’s actually a lot of fun. You and your LITTLE can share the kids of activities you already like to do.
