BBBSBA serves more than 700 young people across all nine Bay Area counties by linking adult volunteers, "bigs," in mentoring relationships with "littles," in the hope of igniting the power and promise of youth.
DAY OF GIVING: Here's how to help in your community
In most cases, these mentoring relationships produce lasting friendships that enhance the lives of both the "bigs" and the "littles."
I became a big brother early in my career, back in 1973, when I was 26-years-old and my little brother Hosea was 13. And now, 47 years later, Hosea and I still have an unbreakable bond.
In fact, my now "middle-aged" little brother attended the last BBBSBA fundraiser that I emceed 3 years ago, and our on-stage reunion was a heartwarming and memorable moment.
