Review for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Heart of Georgia, Inc., Macon, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My first Little was four years old when we were matched. At one point, I had 3 Littles - a teenager, a pre-teen, and a first grader. It was amazing how well they bonded and helped each other out. My experiences have been mixed. Two have aged out and the one that I have left will be entering high school this fall. I have truly benefitted more form this experience than they have. I've watched them grow and mature into young men. One is now married with a son. One is at a crossroads of determining what to make of himself-a decision he has to make. My last Little is an honor student, engaged now with summer practice for football. College is a definite in his future plans. BBBS afforded me this opportunity to be a part of their lives thereby enriching mine.

Review for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Heart of Georgia, Inc., Macon, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have served on the Board and as a Big to three Littles at one time! I can attest to the fact that this organization has helped many children in this area. Being from Gray, Georgia, I was here at the inception of the program at the Jones County High School. Being in close proximity to Gray Elementary, it was a natural fit for high schoolers to walk to Gray Elementary to serve as Bigs. This program is a success.

Now, I am down to one Little and I still depend on the guidance and help from the staff.

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

matching high school mentors to elementary students who look forward to the bonding and association with the students from Jones County High School.

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

like to see the school program expanded to other elementary schools in the district.
