Meet the Match: Jaydin & Juliana

Every child has potential and could benefit from having an additional role model to help ignite it. When you volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters, like Jaydin does, you can be that spark. Sign up as a Big today and you can help a child (Little) fully realize the potential they’ve had all along.

Congratulations to Little Sister Juliana and Big Sister Jaydin on their new mentoring friendship! They are a High School Bigs match, meaning this mentor/mentee pair spends time together at Juliana’s school during her school day, at a standing day and time.


Juliana and Jaydin met in February. Their shared love for arts and crafts and being creative makes them a great pair.

A junior in high school and aspiring therapist, Jaydin signed up to become a mentor because she loves spending time with younger kids. The oldest of 7, Jaydin is planning to attend Michigan State University to study Psychology after high school.

Juliana, an outgoing and enthusiastic 3rd grader, loves gymnastics and dancing. She was thrilled to meet Jaydin and shared that she is excited to “have someone who will always be there” for her.

Since meeting, this dynamic duo has enjoyed playing games together, listening to music, and coloring!


Potential mentor/mentee matches are all thought through carefully. Each Little/Big pair has something in common, which acts as a foundation for them to build their friendship on. We call this “intentional matching.” This focus and care help ensure match quality and longevity.

In Jaydin and Juliana’s match, that foundation is their love for being creative and Jaydin’s extensive experience working with kids. They are sure to have a great time together! Learn more about “intentional matching” and how each Little/Big pair is created here.

Congratulations, Jaydin and Juliana! We are so happy to support your match, and can’t wait to hear about all of the fun things you do together!
