Little activities can lead to Big mentorship
For organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters, a little quality time can make a big difference.
For people like Emily Roth, it’s clear that the role models who were present in her childhood inspired her to take on a career where she works with kids.
Outside of her role with Greenbush, she’s taken that passion even further.

As a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters, Emily and Haleigh (her “little”) have grown a strong bond over the last three years. It can take time to develop a relationship with your match, and Emily acknowledges that even though it wasn’t smooth sailing from the start, the two of them have become best friends.
