Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Greater Miami
June 28, 2012

Shortly after I moved to Miami, I started volunteering for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Miami (BBBS). After completing grad school and starting a good job, I wanted to give back to the community and make a difference in someone else's life. I searched for various organizations and BBBS fullfilled everything I was looking for. I have been matched with my little brother T.J. for about 2 years now and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I truly enjoy spending time with TJ. Personally, I was fortunate enough to have an older brother who kept me in check, out of trouble and who gave me the friend and mentor I needed. Unfortunately, many kids do not have that luxury and it has been so rewarding to spend time with TJ and see him become more responsible in his school work as well as athletic training. BBBS did such an excellent job matching TJ and I and I am sure this will be a very long friendship! I can only highly recommend to anyone to volunteer as a big and sign up for BBBS.
