You’re invited to the Big Brothers Big Sisters #LatinoBigs Twitter Party

Did someone change your life ? That person’s words of wisdom guided you and you were able to achieve your dreams? It happened to me and I will always be thankful to my mentors, because without them I would even be writing this words.

We all have been inspired by someone in our lives, so we know how important it’s to have a role model a mentor specially in the Latino community and it’s time to pay it forward and change someone’s life.

Big Brothers Big Sisters recently launched Latino Bigs, the site is geared towards the Hispanic community and encourages mentoring young children from elementary to high school.

81% of adults who participated in Big Brothers Big Sisters program as Littles say their Big Brother or Big Sister caused them to broaden their horizons  to change what they thought possible in life.

Just what we can do for our youth!

Please join Big Brothers Big Sisters, Latino Bigs and Latina Mom Bloggers as we discuss the importance of mentoring, the impact mentoring has on our Latino youth and how you can become a Latino Big.   Latino Bigs will also answer any of your questions regarding mentorship and our panelists will share their personal mentoring stories.

LatinoBigs change the lives of children. Compared to children not in our program, Latino Bigs Littles are LESS likely to skip school, use drugs and begin drinking alcohol. Children matched in Big Brothers Big Sisters programs maintain or improve outcome areas of educational success, avoidance of risky behaviors and socio-emotional competency.  Latino Bigs participants are also more likely to graduate and be prepared for employment.

If not us, who?  If not now, when?  Volunteer Now!
