Mentoring can happen wherever you are! Our matches continue to connect over video chats and phone calls, and our staff continues to make new matches through virtual interviews. This week, we made our very first virtual match, and we are excited to introduce you to Brooklyn and Lyle! Little Brooklyn, his Grandmother Alicia, and Big Lyle had a wonderful time speaking with Program Supervisor Raven, and Match Support Specialists Vanessa and Brandi. They’re looking forward to video conferencing and discussing their shared love of gaming and game theory!
Our mission is more critical than ever, and we still need your support to continue offering our life-changing program to children and teens in our community. We will not lose sight of how individualized mentoring programs like ours help combat mental health issues such as loneliness, depression, anxiety, and self-esteem. Although we have had to adjust programming, we know we will get through this because of our family of supporters. If you are inspired to help during this time, please give now!
Wishing you health and hope,
The Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area Team
