Ishaiah and Luis - Third Times the Charm
Little brother Ishaiah and Big Brother Luis will be matched for 6 months in June! This match is active and fun. Luis joined Big Brothers Big Sisters to become more involved in his community, give back to his community, and be able to enlighten a child's life. Ishaiah was looking for someone to be able to play sports with him or play video games. His mom wanted him to have a male role model in his life and exemplify what a gentleman is and help with school. Ishaiah was able to find these qualities in Luis. Throughout their match Ishaiah and Luis have gone to museums, swimming, to the movies, to the park, to community events, and one of Ishaiah's favorite activities which is to watch his big brother practice jujitsu. Although Ishaiah was shy at first and sometimes still is, he has talked about how much he enjoys spending time with his Big Brother. After two failed attempts to match Ishaiah with a Big Brother, this match has definitely been one to show how fun the program is and what a persistent and committed volunteer can do for a child.
