Seeking a Big Brother and Mentor for Tommy, a kind, thoughtful, and active young boy from Newton. Tommy has had an unstable and challenging upbringing and could benefit from an empathic male mentor who demonstrates reliability and consistency, and would also be comfortable setting boundaries. Tommy is hoping for an active, easy-going, warm, kind, and non-judgmental Big Brother. He enjoys playing sports in his free time, especially ultimate frisbee, and loves to his bike, swim, build paper airplanes, do arts and crafts, solve puzzles, and anything to do with superheroes!

JBBBS is looking for someone who can spend time with their Little twice a month, mostly on weekends, for one year -- and would be eager to make a huge impact on Tommy’s life. Our amazing Clinical Match Specialists will also provide match support throughout the experience. For now, matches meet virtually which is working great!

Jewish and non-Jewish volunteers welcome!
