Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Boston

Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters (JBBBS) is seeking an LGBTQ+ BIG (ages 25-35) to be matched with Shanice, a wonderful African American non-binary 17 year old "future Maya Angelou" who attends a charter school in Boston. Shanice describes their preference for a potential Big as a "confident African American non-binary person." Shanice has many interests and is a good student, but finds math to be a challenge. They like Ballroom Vogue, going to the beach and driving a car. Shanice is an athlete who plays volleyball (their favorite), soccer, and basketball. They also enjoy anything pertaining to hair and nails. Shanice has not fully come out to family and could benefit from a caring adult who can help them navigate being their authentic self.

JBBBS welcomes volunteers from all religions, ethnicities, and backgrounds. Matches agree to meet 2x/mo, mostly weekends, and make at least a one year commitment. Every match is supported by a Masters Level Clinical Match Specialist who is there to help the match succeed. Car required.
