As I've talked about before, I volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana as a big brother (or "big" for short.) It has been an awesome and rewarding experience over the last four years.
I just learned that there are currently 90 boys waiting to be matched up with Big Brothers in central Indiana. There is a significant shortage of guys willing to be mentors to these boys (with the girls it's the exact opposite, there is a surplus of Big Sisters waiting on matches.)
If this is something you've ever thought about, I highly recommend you volunteering. It's a great opportunity to invest in a young person that needs a positive male role model in their life. The commitment is for one year, and you must agree to get together with your "little" 1-2 times a month.
For me, my little brother has become a part of our family. If you are interested, have any questions or want more information let me know.
