Introducing our Bigs of the Year!


Big Sister of the Year

Big Christa and her Little Kiarra

Christa Wilson

Christa enrolled to become a Big Sister in 2009 and was matched with her Little, Kiarra who was 10 years. Over the past 7 years, they shared numerous activities, many of which were “firsts” for Kiarra. These included Kiarra’s first baseball game, baking cookies, painting ceramics, ice skating, and seeing a Broadway musical. “Kiarra holds a very special place in my heart. She has really enriched my life more than I could have imagined. She has taught me that friendship is the best gift,” shared Christa.

I can tell Christa everything and never feel judged. I hope Christa is in my life forever because she made me feel loved, special, and overall, just wanted. - said Little Sister Kiarra

 

Big Brother of the Year - Beyond School Walls Program

Big Orlando and his Little Caique

Orlando Reyes

Orlando enrolled as a Big Brother 7 years ago when the Monmouth Medical Center program with Long Branch High School first launched. Orlando has been a consistent, positive, male role model to each of his mentees over the years. He has shared in numerous department tours with his mentees, along with spending quality, one to one time together. Being a Long Branch High School alumnus himself, Orlando adds great value to the program and teaches his mentees how to be successful in life. Orlando believes he has grown in his self-confidence and leadership skills due to being a mentor in this program.

Caique, Orlando’s 2014-2015 Mentee, shared, I really enjoyed being matched to Orlando. He is fun, funny and easy to talk to. I’m so glad I joined this program and was matched to Orlando.

 

Big Sister of the Year – School Based Program

1602bigyear-BigGemmaLittleCarly-mBig Gemma and Little Carl

Gemma Hurley

Gemma joined the Milltown Mentoring Program when the program first kicked off in January 2013, when she was a freshman at Spotswood High School. Gemma is in her fourth year as a mentor to a middle school student at Joyce Kilmer School Gemma has always been consistent, encouraging and incredibly positive to each of her Little Sisters. She arrives to each session with a big, contagious smile that brightens everyone’s day. Together, Gemma and her Little Sister work together on activities that help her Little learn team building skills, gain self-confidence and ultimately build a long-lasting friendship.

Carly, Gemma’s Little Sister for 2 school years said, I’m going to miss Gemma a lot. She always made me laugh, encouraged me and was incredibly kind. I loved being paired with Gemma and I’m so happy she was my Big Sister.

 

You can directly support local youth facing adversity by contributing to create a match between a caring adult and a child in need of a friend and role model.

With your help, we can make a positive impact on a child’s life and future through 1:1 mentoring.



Together we can make BIG things happen!
