Sometimes we are just not sure of the impact we make with these kiddo’s. Everyone in the program always says you are making a difference in a child’s life by being a mentor. But never did we realize that more than one day when the program director was chatting with one of the matches that she oversees. She’s been with this match for 8 ½ years. As they are approaching their final year of the match, the Little is a senior in High School, they have a beginning of the school year conversation.
How was your summer? Are you looking forward to the school year? What are your plans after graduation?
In closing, Mandy asked the Little one more question…If I can do anything for you, please let me know.
His response…”You want to do more for me? Are you serious? Big Brothers Big Sisters has done so much for me already, I don’t think you can do any more.”
And that is why we do what we do.
