Congrats to Shane F., Big Mentor of the Month for July!
We asked Shane what inspired him to become a mentor and this is what he said, “Two years ago, I was looking at ways I could make a positive impact in my community. I chose to volunteer with Big Brothers Oxford County because I wanted to serve as a positive role model and provide guidance to a young person who might benefit from a supportive adult figure in their life. Being a mentor at Big Brothers has been an enriching experience, as I feel I have learned just as much from my mentee as he has learned from me. In the last two years, I have witnessed many positive changes and growth within my mentee and my hope is that some of these changes were a result of my involvement. I look forward to continuing my involvement with Big Brothers of Oxford County and with their support continue to be a positive influence within my community”.
WOW! Thank you, Shane, for igniting potential for Oxford County youth!
