Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central New Mexico is hosting its “Man Up Lunch” on July 10 to recruit more male mentors.
Men are desperately needed to mentor young boys, be a friend and help guide them through life’s ups and downs to help them become successful, productive adults.
The epidemic of school shootings in our nation shows that there is a problem with our young men – they are angry, and many of them blame others and express that anger through violence.
What if they’d had a caring mentor to help them through their problems, and show them how to process feelings properly?
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life.
Most children served by Big Brothers Big Sisters are in single-parent and low-income families or households where a parent is incarcerated.
As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers and children.
