The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Are you a male looking to make a significant difference in a boy's life? Do you enjoy playing or watching sports games and just having fun like being a kid again? The Big Friends Little Friends program would be a great way of achieving just that.
Big Friends Little Friends matches mentors, 17 years of age and older, with children ages 7 -14 who need a positive role model in their lives (teens 17 years and older with a driver's license of 6 months and parent permission may also participate).
Currently, there are over 25 boys who are on our waiting list and hoping for a male mentor, a mentor who will have FUN with them while helping them to grow and make positive choices.
There are so many fun activities that we do with our mentors and mentees such as going to at least one FREE Boston Red Sox game each year sponsored by Mass Mentoring Partnership, or possibly to a New England Patriots game, a Boston Celtics game, New England Revolution game, etc. There is a boy out there looking forward to your positive influence! Be a mentor and make that difference!
