Little Brother, “Peter,” met someone who would change his life forever when he was enrolled in Big Brothers Big Sisters as an 8th grader. Struggling with having multiple family members in prison, Peter had difficultly envisioning a positive future for himself. He was resentful and having problems in school.
Soon, Peter was willing to share his embarrassment about his family life with his Big Brother, “Josh,” and is now working hard to show his Big Brother that he can make better choices in his life.
Big Brother Josh is helping his Little Brother Peter explore a future career in mechanics while making him feel like he is accepted by someone who cares. Because he is.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Texas, a United Way nonprofit partner, works to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
