Do you remember the older guy in your life who you wanted to be just like? Someone who always spent time with you and helped to shape the person you are today?
It’s time for you to be that person to a youth in our community. At Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters there are youth in every community and school in Yavapai County just waiting to be matched with a Big Brother, Big Sister or Family. The majority of these children are boys who are being raised by a single mom or grandparent.
Women are great mentors but some conversations can only happen with another guy! You can provide that! Make an impact in a boy’s life simply by taking that first step and volunteering to be a Big Brother today!
Josiah is 5 years old. He just started kindergarten this year. He is the youngest in his family and lives with his parents and three older sisters.
Josiah’s favorite activity is playing ball. He likes to spend time outside. According to his family, Josiah has a great sense of humor. Josiah is definitely a people person and thinks it is fun and easy to meet new people. But he says he really doesn’t have any friends. When asked about chores, Josiah explains that his biggest chore is cleaning his room.
Josiah loves his family and likes spending time with them. Josiah is wants a Big Brother just to hang out with. Someone that can play catch and have fun. Josiah’s mom thinks he would benefit from a Big Brother that would simply spend one-to-one time with him.
The extra attention and friendship of a Big Brother would be a positive influence in Josiah’s life and would help him build confidence and self esteem.
You don’t have to change your life to change his. Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters has programs for couples, families, and individuals.
It only takes a few hours a couple of times a month to make a difference in the life of a young person like Josiah. And our Big Brothers and Big Sisters all say that they get as much out of being matched as their Little!
Contact Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters today to find out how easy it can be to watch a little go a long way.
