LIVE: Mentors Get As Much As They Give
Big Brother Devlyn Brooks Talks About How Fulfilling It Is Being A Mentor
Being a mentor is a two-way street. You give your time and compassion helping a child in our community. But you also get so much from the experience.
Devlyn Brooks gives an impassioned plea for people to consider being a mentor this National Mentoring Month.
He’s been a Big for Big Brothers/Big Sisters for six years.
He’s a school-based Big, which means he spends 40 minutes with his Little one day a week.
He says it’s no time commitment at all.
Anyone can make a difference in a child’s life in just four months a month.
You don’t need to have experience with kids. You don’t need to be a parent. You just need to be there for a kid.
If you are, the warmth you get back will be just as great as what you give.
Find out how to become a Big today. There are more than 90 kids waiting for mentors in the F/M area.
