May Match Maker

Hunter  and  Jania have been matched together since November 2014, during Jania’s first year at Welborn Middle School.

April Match Maker

Lauren and Marybeth have been matched since October 2012.  Lauren is a High Point University student who wanted to help others and spend some time outside of her college bubble.  Marybeth needed help initially with reading but her needs have changed throughout the years.  She is now a “tween” and Lauren has learned how to deal with all that comes with that age.  Lauren has been a constant and steady influence in Marybeth’s life.  Sometimes we overlook the volunteers whose impact is most profoundly felt as a result of them “just being there”.  You can’t change a child’s life, tell them how much they matter, or influence their decisions unless you show up.  Lauren has been “showing […]

March Match Maker

“I first met Jasmine Williams in the fall of 2012.  I was excited to have her as a Big because she had extensive experience with children- she had been a camp counselor at the Y, a lifeguard, and her family had a daycare.  Her references said wonderful things about her willingness to take on extra assignments and how the kids all loved her.  Most importantly to me, she checked the box “Willing to work with a child of the opposite sex”.  I had, and continue to have, a huge number of boys and very few males to match them with.  I remember feeling very comfortable with her willingness to be matched with a boy- she wasn’t just […]

February Match Maker

Genesis and Maggie have been matched in our Site Based program since November 2014 and they have been growing their friendship every week since. Maggie visits Genesis at Oakview Elementary. When they are together, Genesis and Maggie always have a good time. Some of the activities they enjoy doing together are eating lunch together, playing board games, drawing, coloring and talking. Genesis stated with a big smile, “My Big sister Maggie has helped me improve my grades. I used to make C’s and D’s and now I am making A’s and B’s. I enjoy her friendship and she always makes me feel better, she is always encouraging and she is fun.”

Maggie was motivated to become a Big […]

January Match Maker

Maggie and Olivia will have been matched in our Site Based program for a year in February.  Maggie sees Olivia at the Southside Boys & Girls Club every Wednesday.  They first always work on any homework Olivia might have.  After Olivia has snack, they then play Mancala, Connect Four or color.  One of their favorite activities is to play jump rope in the gym with some of the other Bigs and Littles that visit on Wednesdays.  Maggie says her favorite thing about Olivia is “her sweet personality” and Olivia describes Maggie as “nice and helpful”.  Olivia always greets Maggie with a huge smile and a hug and knows she will be back to see her the very next week.  […]
