BBBST Celebrates National Mentoring Month
Support the Mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Triangle
You can change a life this National Mentoring Month. As we celebrate our 170,000 mentors this month, we are also eager to fund and support even more children who are hopeful to get matched with their Big Brother or Big Sister. We ask that you remember the difference a role model can make for a child. Our model is proven to help children do better in school, feel more confident and avoid risky behaviors like skipping school or using drugs or alcohol. By donating, becoming a mentor or sharing support, you can help a child waiting for a strong adult mentor.

At age 13, Xavier was facing obstacles that would be difficult for anyone at any age or life stage. His parents had recently divorced, and he lost all of his possessions in a house fire. With few goals and low self-esteem, Xavier never really stood out among his peers. He was not overly popular or athletic, and he did not excel academically. His mother recognized that he needed something else in his life.
After going through the enrollment process, Xavier met and was matched with his new Big Brother, Air Force Maj. Joe Hunt, who was stationed at McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita. The pair very quickly bonded over a number of things, including their love of sports cars, action movies and working out.
