As the New Year approaches, we have the opportunity to reflect. Most of us are thankful for mentors that have impacted our lives in one way or another. Did someone help guide your professional career? Did a coach, a teacher or a friend help motivate you to pursue your dreams? Mentors can have such a positive impact on a young person’s life path. Let’s share our appreciation for mentors as we talk about supporting our own Latino youth in the upcoming year.
Are you ready to step up and be a mentor? How will you volunteer to help Latino youth in 2013? Please join Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of America “Latino Bigs” campaign and Latina Mom Bloggers as we focus on propelling our Latino youth to achieve their potential and discuss how YOU can volunteer to become a Latino Big in 2013. Latino Bigs will be on hand to share their current stories of supporting a ‘little.’
LatinoBigs change the lives of children. Compared to children not in the BBBS program, Latino Littles are LESS likely to skip school, use drugs and begin drinking alcohol. Children matched in Big Brothers Big Sisters programs maintain or improve educational success, avoidance of risky behaviors and socio-emotional competency. Latino Bigs participants are also more likely to graduate and be prepared for employment.
If not us, who? If not now, when? Volunteer Now. Make 2013 your year to Mentor Latino youth!
