Mentoring a child has been proven to have many positive aspects on their lives. It helps most simply because it shows a child that someone cares about them, and that they are not alone in dealing with daily struggles.
- Mentors help keep kids in school, and they help improve self-esteem.
- Mentors can help teens to build communication skills and good academic habits.
- Having a mentor can improve higher lifetime earnings and reduce juvenile crime.
With so many positive benefits, we strive to continue to place our little’s with a positive life mentor in hopes of building valuable bonds, much like big sister and little brother Julie & Kevin. Little brother Kevin explains how Julie’s and his relationship has grown saying, “When I don't have anyone else to trust, I can always go to Julie.”
Much is the same with Little and Big duo, Skyler & Bill. "It's always nice to have someone to talk to", says Skyler when asked how his Big has impacted his life.
