Get to Know 3 of Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Matches (Video)

Meet three mentor/mentee matches, who are staying connected even while social distancing. For these Bigs, representation matters.

Little Brother Javieon and Big Brother Javon have been matched for 2 years. Javieon feels heard when he talks with Javon and considers his Big Brother to be a part of his family. Javon can tell Javieon will make a big impact on his community.

Little Brother Levi and Big Brother Eric are part of the Big Pride program and have been matched for 2 years. Levi feels more comfortable in his skin because of his relationship with Eric. Levi’s parents knew he would benefit from a mentor with similar experiences and are grateful the Big Pride program can provide that for their son.

Little Sister Sammy and Big Sister Charyl have been matched for 5 years. Sammy is shy and reserved, so her friendship with Charyl is very important to her. Sammy loves school thanks to her friendship with Charyl. Charyl has inspired Sammy to further her education by going to college.
