Commit to Be a Big Brothers Big Sisters #LatinoBigs Mentor this New Year!

Every year I start off the holidays by making goals for the New Year.  I make a  list of nonprofits I want to support and volunteer with inorder to give back to the community.   Volunteering at the local nonprofits has always made a difference in my families life.  Many would consider  volunteering a burden, but in reality, for our family volunteering is a rewarding experience.  Do you agree?

 

I often think about the many people that have touch my life through their volunteer efforts and it has encouraged me to give back!  Big Brothers Big Sisters Latino Bigs mentoring program is similar to the programs I was a part of as a youth.   There is currently a need for Latino Bigs because they share a common culture with Latino Littles who are in need of a little attention from a caring mentor.

 

I identify with the kids and the program because similar to the youth I lived in a high risk area for youths and thankfully to the role model and mentors I had in my life I was able to avoid most of the risks.

Whether you’re a school teacher, working full-time, part-time or a student, Latino Bigs needs you to become a Big Campeones!  You don’t need special training or a degree to positively influence a child.  Everyone has the ability to make a big impact in a child’s life.

For the New Year consider engaging and supporting our Latino community as a ‘Big’ volunteer.  Commit to Be a Big Brothers Big Sisters #LatinoBigs Mentor this New Year!

 

For more more information about volunteering as a ‘”Big” check out www.latinobigs.org or  www.bigbrothersbigsisters.org.

Question:  Have you considered giving the gift of volunteerism as a New Year resolution?  How can we help Latino youth at risk?
