Jada Smith, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida(BBBS), sets out a call to action for 100 men of minority descent to become a mentor. The need is ever apparent with over 450 Black & Hispanic young men on the waiting list and no mentors to assign them. It's up to our community to pull together and take a child's hand.
BBBS of Central Florida has a rich history that spans nearly 40 years serving five-counties including Lake, Brevard, Orange, Seminole and Osceola. Their belief is that every child has the inherent ability to succeed. Cultivating that success are the carefully matched & monitored mentors who volunteer once a month through the program.
As a result many "Littles" credit their better decision making to their "Bigs." In fact, 67% of mentees agree that their relationships influenced their pursuit of higher education. Without programs like BBBS, many children are left hanging in the balance. By becoming a mentor, you can start something big. Sign up today by visiting bbbscfl.org
