Review for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Heart of Georgia, Inc., Macon, GA, USA
I have been a big sister with BBBS Middle Georgia for almost 5 years. I started in the program as a school based mentor to only one little. When it was time for school to end for the the school year I couldn't imagine not interacting with my little throughout the summer so I became a community based mentor. My little has a twin sister so I picked her sister up during the summer as well and although the twin already had a big sister I have remained a big sister to both. It is truly a pleasure to be a big sister to these girls, there is such a sense of joy that comes over me when I am with my littles. To be able to put a smile on a child's face that has no blood or other relation to you is phenomenal. One of the best memories that I have was during the first year of mentoring and CRCTs (standardized testing) were coming up. My little was so excited about the upcoming exams, she wrote me a note to tell me me that she knew that she would do well on the CRCTs because I had been helping her.
Having positive influences in the lives of children that could possibly go down the "wrong path" will make all the difference to them, beyond anything you could ever imagine.
