You don't have to change YOUR life in order to change the life of a child! At Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters, we are looking for real people who are interested in making a difference in a child's life. Our Big Brothers and Big Sisters come from all walks of life and all backgrounds. They even come as a family! Research proves that one-to-one mentoring is the single most effective way to impact our communities' most at-risk youth. By becoming a Big Brother, Big Sister, Couple or Family match, you can make a BIG difference in a child's life!

Everette is 11 years old and will be in the sixth grade in the fall. He's an extremely smart kid and gets A's and B's in school. His favorite subject is math.

He enjoys going to church and bible study with friends. Everette is incredibly curious about the world around him. He likes to explore how things work and enjoys mechanical projects, taking things apart and putting them back together again. He sometimes sculpts with clay, plays drums, skateboards, rides his bike and enjoys video games.

Everette lives with his mom, sister and his cat Bluebell, who has been his buddy since he was only a year old. He has lots of close friends his age. He wants a Big Brother that would hang out, play video games and do guy stuff with him.

He wants his Big Brother to know that he is smart! Everette's mom would like to see him matched with someone that would spend some one-on-one time with Everette but also include him in family activities.

She thinks it would be great if his Big Brother was someone that could share skills and interests like mechanics or carpentry with her son.

It only takes a few hours a couple of times a month to become a mentor to a young person like Everette. Right here in the Verde Valley, there are hundreds of children just waiting for someone like you to be a Big Brother, Big Sister or Family Match. Find out how easy it is to make a big difference and change a young person's life, call the Verde Valley/Sedona office of Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters at 928-634-9789 or sign up online
