Oct. 14—Meet Little Brother Jaime, the October Little of the Month.
Jaime is a 10-year-old from Reading who wants to be a successful when he grows up. He would benefit greatly from having a positive, outgoing role model in his life to stand with him to defend his potential.
Jaime enjoys outdoor activities and sports.
----Jaime is looking for someone to spend one-on-one time with him. He wants someone who will encourage his interests and inspire his potential; someone he can trust and rely on; someone who will listen when he wants to talk. Are you that someone?
----Together, we are defenders of potential. Are you willing to stand with us and defend potential in LB Jaime or any of our waiting Little Brothers and Little Sisters? For more than 50 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has provided quality-driven mentoring programs to Berks County youth facing adversity. We do not create potential, because every child has it. Our staff and volunteers are there to ignite their potential and empower our Littles to reach that potential.
For as little as 12 hours per year (as a COUL Big) up to an average of 8-10 hours per month (as a One-To-One Big), you can make a difference in a child's life.
Qualifications for a Big Brother or Big Sister include being at least 19 years old, residing in Berks County, possessing a valid driver's license, having a good driving history and auto insurance that meets the current liability standards, being gainfully employed, economically self-sufficient or a full-time college student, and being willing to complete the entire application process in its entirety.
Activities that Bigs do with Littles may include hiking, cooking, gardening, sports, movies, bike riding, shopping and day trips. The possibilities are endless! Spending money is not necessary. The value is in the time spent playing, working, and talking together.
If you have any questions about being a volunteer in any one of our many programs, contact Big Brothers Big Sisters of Berks County, phone 610-373-5544. For more information, visit www.BigsInBerks.org
