Latinas Motivating Hombres to Step Up as Mentors #LatinoBigs Twitter Party

Did you know that according to the Pew Research Center Hispanic kids make up 23% of the 17 & under U.S. population? That is more than 17 million children and growing. About 20% of the children served by Big Brothers Big Sisters are Latino – a number quickly increasing. Yet, only 9% of our Bigs are Latino. In addition, while more than 70% of the children ready and waiting to be matched with a mentor are boys, only 3 of 10 volunteer inquiries come from men.

Our community MUST get involved to support our children and ensure their future success, and that of the United States. More so, we need our padres, tios, hermanos and abuelos (fathers, uncles, brothers and even grandfathers) to step up and volunteer! If our men aren’t listening- we need the women in their lives to get them motivated and volunteering.

#LatinoBigs-4

Big Brothers Big Sisters has made a big impact in communities across America for more than 100 years. The organization holds itself accountable for children matched in its mentoring programs to achieve positive outcomes. Within the organization, LatinoBigs are changing the lives of children. Compared to children not in our program, Latino Littles are LESS likely to skip school, use drugs and begin drinking alcohol. Latino Little participants are also more likely to graduate and be prepared for employment.

Please join Big Brothers Big Sisters, Latino Bigs and Latina Mom Bloggers as we focus on propelling our Latino youth to achieve their potential and discuss how YOU, and the men in your life, can become a Latino Big. Latino Bigs will be on hand to share their current stories of supporting a ‘little’. And we have some great prizes to share and get everyone motivated and listening.
If not us, who? If not now, when? Volunteer Now.

    Stupid questions: Does one have to be a Latina Mom to participate? I’m a latino Mr Mom.

    What’s the deal with people who have multiple entries? Isn’t that cheating?

    Third question: My Twitter profile is “private” to protect myself from a specific stalker. Does this present a problem?
