BBBS is the BEST thing that has happened to our family!! The confidence, self esteem and overall growth of my kids over the last few months is due to their BIGS!

Without BBBS I feel I would still be struggling with trying to give each child the attention they need. Now that they have 1 on 1 time with their BIGS, we are able to do things together as a family without the fight for my attention.

Thank you BBBS for helping my family to grow stronger and closer!!

Question: What kind of impact do you feel you made on your Mentee? (Asked to Bigs)

“He seems very excited when we meet every Thursday. He seems to be a bit more relaxed now.”

“I believe I was a good role model. He had fun when he was there. I connected with him the best I could I think we all opened up to each other. He trusted us Bigs and had fun.”
