The American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry states that “children look up to a variety of role models to help shape how they behave in school, relationships, or when making difficult decisions.” The behaviors they bear witness to can definitely inform their own habits as they go on through life and become adults. That being said, it becomes important that we are or at least provide good role models to our children.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Sierra has made it their mission to ensure that just that happens in our community. It is their purpose to “create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.” This passionate organization implements a matching process that is intended to pair each child in their program with a mentor that is best suited to their needs. They also provide ongoing support, training, advice, and a multitude of community-based and school-based programs, all focused on enriching the lives of our kids.
At Vaught, Wright and Bond Insurance, we believe that the children in our community deserve the opportunity to be led by exemplary “Big Brothers and Sisters”.
