One-to-one mentoring is always important, but as we continue to move forward from the COVID19 pandemic, it's even more important to make sure that all youth in Central Minnesota are getting the attention they need in order to succeed in school, at home, and in social situations, and also to give them a push forward so they stay on track at school and start thinking about the future.

Supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Minnesota helps find and pair mentors - Bigs - with mentees - Littles - and helps form a bond that has the potential to change lives. Just look at Kelly Simondet and Nick.

Nick and Kelly were matched in July 2013, just a few weeks before Nick's 10th birthday. Nick has always led an active lifestyle, and has shown how hard working he is through his dedication to sports. He has developed a love for golf, basketball, and hockey. An avid hockey player, Nick has committed years of his time to the sport and spent endless hours on the ice.

Kelly has always supported Nick's competitive nature and active lifestyle, and has become one of Nick's biggest fans. Kelly has also inspired Nick to become a Big himself someday so that he can be a positive influence for a young person when they need it. Nick has already been accepted into the electrical program at St. Cloud Technical and Community College, and will attend in Fall 2023. This spring, Nick was named the Central Minnesota Little Brother of the Year.

With your support, BBBS of Central Minnesota can make more matches like Nick and Kelly, and help youth in Central Minnesota figure out their life path - with a steady, consistent friend and mentor by their sides. Will you stand with us and help support our mission to find a match for every youth in Central Minnesota who needs one?
