I am very excited for the future that I will have with this organization! The opportunities that they provide the volunteers and the "littles" and the effect that they have in their community is something that I can support financially and with my time. Big Brother Big Sisters of Tampa Bay's mission statement is "To help children reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with measurable impact." I hope that I do not limit myself to just one "little" but that I can have an influence on my entire community.

Finally took that step!
After hearing so much about my sister's "little" at the Big Brother Big Sister organization and after thinking so much about becoming a "big" I submitted my application, passed the enrollment class and the background check. Last week, I was called with the exciting news that they had a match for me! A sweet girl named Chasity. After speaking with two match specialists, I decided to not accept the responsibility to be this girls "big". The search will continue to find the perfect match for both me and the little.
