My mission

Some of you know that I’m a mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters. What many of you don’t know is that I mentor through their online program, Ourspace. Ourspace helps ensure that at-risk kids get the benefit of a well matched mentor no matter where they live, and gives volunteers like me the flexibility to meet my commitments whether I’m at home or interstate. I wasn’t sure that I had the right skills to become a mentor but the people in charge at Big Brothers Big Sisters took a lot of care to ensure that I was ready, and that my Little and I were a great match. Big Brothers Big Sisters provides a lot of support material, and a dedicated resource to administer the match. All I have to do is turn up each week and be there for my Little – Big Brothers Big Sisters does all the work behind the scenes to make it easy. The first time I spoke with my Little, she was very shy - now when we log in to the platform, she’s ready and raring to tell me all about whatever she’s experienced since we last chatted. She’s more confident in expressing herself and sharing her thoughts and feelings. A few weeks ago, she told me that talking to me helps her feel happier – how amazing is that?! There are a lot of kids like my Little who are in need of extra support, and that’s where you come in. With your donation, we can fundraise for Big Brothers Big Sisters, providing them the means to find and train more mentors so that other kids can feel happier and more connected. Thanks, Melissa
