The presence of a mentor helps to widen the spectrum of what’s possible in a child’s life. Edmond’s mom noticed a huge difference when her son began to spend more time with his Big Brother, Etienne. Even the little things, like Edmond having the confidence to express himself and make more jokes than he did before, reassured her that the program is helping to build his self-esteem. She can’t wait to see what the future holds for her son and she’s so grateful that he will have had the impact of a Big Brother in his life.
