Big Joe / Little Leo

Friendship.

That’s what brought Leo to us! Like most 12-year-olds, Leo had a love for video games, but he also knew he wanted something more than “Call Of Duty” in his life. When he was matched with his Big Brother, Joe, the friendship that Leo was seeking began to blossom. With every interaction and new experience their lives were enriched. Joe, a former music teacher, has guitar plans for Leo. But for now, they’re really focused on one thing. Friendship.

Personal Growth.

When Will, a Lakeview resident, became a Big, he was looking to get involved in his community. “Little” did he know, the experience would change his life. He was matched with Nahum, a young Rubik’s Cube whiz. Will found Nahum had goals and values like his own as a teen. He recalled, how as a teen, he sought out advice to get a more mature perspective. In returning the favor, Will gained much more than community involvement. He achieved personal growth.

Big Laura / Little Gianna

Self-confidence

Like many young people today, Gianna was struggling and didn’t quite understand why. Then Laura became her Big Sister. Laura noticed that Gianna’s interest was piqued in a school play. She coached Gianna through stage fright and helped boost her self-esteem. A heart-warming success-story culminated when Gianna stared as Lucy in the school’s production of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.” And her self-confidence stole the show.
