Did you know that over 100 local children are waiting for a mentor through Big Brothers Big Sisters? They all have different background stories, but the one thing they share is the need for a caring mentor to stand up and defend their potential. By spending just 3 hours a month, our mentors create stability by being a consistent figure they can look up to and confide in. It only takes a little time to make a big difference.
Future Little Sister Amaya is 12 years old and goes back and forth between living with her mom and dad. She enjoys basketball, soccer, kickball, volleyball, cheerleading, track and field, and gymnastics. Amaya is one active girl! When she is not out playing sports, Amaya likes to watch scary movies, listen to hip-hop music, and read.
Amaya's mother wants someone to work with her on responsibility. In Amaya's opinion, she thinks being able to share feelings with someone that understands will be the best part of having a Big. She wants go swimming, go to Skyzone, and go to parks together with her Big. When she grows up, Amaya said that she wants to be an author or a businesswoman.
This is just one of the dozens of children we have waiting on someone to defend their potential. Learn more about how you can help children like Amaya at mentoringkids.org/volunteer.
