Joining a new fandom only to discover it’s been dead for years.
So I have been doing some research lately and I have come across this interesting organisation called “Big Brothers Big Sisters”. When I visited their website, I was completely immersed and curious of such an organisation.
From the website:
Each time Big Brothers Big Sisters pairs a child with a role model, we start something incredible: a one-to-one relationship built on trust and friendship that can blossom into a future of unlimited potential. And thanks to the first-ever nationwide impact study of a mentoring organization, we have the facts to prove it.
As the nation’s largest non-profit one-to-one youth mentoring organization, it is our mission to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better—forever.
Researchers found that after 18 months of spending time with their Bigs, the Little Brothers and Little Sisters, compared to those children not in our program, were:
- 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
- 27% less likely to begin using alcohol
- 52% less likely to skip school
- 37% less likely to skip a class
- 33% less likely to hit someone
I personally think this is a very neat plan, but especially in need of help as the children most in need for volunteers (role-models and such) are men of different racial and ethnic backgrounds. Only 3 out of 10 boys get to have a Big Brother to mentor them, to help mold the children of our future and to help those children find themselves.
So if you’re a guy or a gal interested in volunteering, donating, or in any way participating in advancing the development of children today, I think this is a very good place to start out.

Has anybody done this before? If so, share your experience!
Seems like a great idea. I think I will see if there are similar programs for other countries and post them when I get a chance.
This looks wonderful!
I encourage followers to check this out!
once when i was little, i claimed it was a teacher’s work day so i wouldn’t have to go to school and mom’s not an idiot so of course it didn’t work, but when we got to the school, we found it was a teacher’s work day and that made me think i had super powers so i started trying to kill classmates with my mind to confirm the theory
You thought you had super powers so you immediately attempted to murder everyone
