Big Brother George is so committed to his Little Brother Bailey; he still goes to Bailey's classroom and helps out. George even taught Bailey's class one day, inspiring them with his own poems and getting the class interested in poetry.
Bailey and I chatted about what George means to him. He said poignantly, "He's a really nice Big Brother. He is always there for me. He's like a Dad to me." Bailey continued, "Having George has helped me kind of get over my anger problems, and I am better in math and I understand things more clearly."
Bailey and George are friends. George has encouraged Bailey to become a better student, to persevere even when things aren't going his way. Bailey has grown into more confident boy with a can-do attitude!
George says of his Little Brother, Bailey: "Watching him grow emotionally and intellectually has been the coolest thing - you can almost see it happen right before your eyes." He continues, "Bailey is a very thankful kid; he's very polite."
Does this equation sound interesting to you? Become a Big and see what a difference you can make in the life of a Little.
