Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Greater Miami
June 27, 2012

I was matched with my Little Brother just over a year ago. We've gone through so much together, and many of the experiences have been thanks to BBBS and its partners/donors that make it possible for matches to attend local community events that wouldn't necessarily be within my reach to share with my Little. Some of these great activities have been going to see Cirque Eloize, going to the Miami Seaquarium, Museum of Science, Marlins' game, Dolphins' football camp, and more. When I signed up for the program, I did it so I could help a kid in my community, but I've gotten so much more than that already. My Little (10 yo) has already asked me what will happen if he loses my number when he goes to college...Like the agency says "Little moments, Big Magic".

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the growth of the Little Brother I am currently matched to.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

offer more trainings for volunteers to learn how to handle certain scenarios and to help with the academic & social development of the children we serve. It would also be good to offer Parent Workshops.
