  • Big Impacts: Big World = Big Opportunity
  • Little Sister Hope’s mom knew that her daughter needed guidance to ensure Hope would stay focused on school and have a more positive outlook on life. Hope was matched with Big Sister Brianna in 2012. Brianna wanted to find a way to give back to her community and have a direct impact on an individual’s life, instead of just donating money for a cause. Since their match started, Big Sister Brianna has worked to ensure her Little Sister that they will be keeping their relationship for a long time.

  • Big Impacts: Life Lessons & Big Compassion
  • When Little Brother Deonte met his Big Brother Alan, he was struggling academically and was displaying negative behavior at school and at home. He would disrespect his teachers and get into confrontation with is peers. Deonte was diagnosed with ADHD and found it very difficult to maintain focus. Alan, from the beginning of the match, provided Deonte with the encouragement, guidance and consistency that he needed in his life. Their match started through a school-based program where they met once a week at school during lunch/recess period. Here they would eat lunch and play a game, do school work or practice lessons on the computer. The match grew and evolved to a community-based match. Here they would have the opportunity to do more activities and spend more time together.
