Think back to your childhood.

Who Mentored You?

Big Brothers Big Sisters is betting that you have stories to tell. Maybe it was a parent or grandparent who helped you navigate the challenges of childhood. Maybe you had a teacher or counselor who was instrumental in your development. Or a coach, or someone in your church, or your Boy Scout or Girl Scout Leader was there when you needed them. Or your Big Brother or Big Sister. Maybe you had multiple mentors. No one does it alone.

In celebration of Big Brothers Big Sisters' recent move to its new South Texas Mentoring Resource Center, we are hoping that you, and everyone in our community, will celebrate with us to identify and commemorate the people who helped you get where you are today.  

It's easy, just post a few words, a picture or a video to a Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtag #WhoMentoredYou. If you are friend-ed to or follow Big Brothers Big Sisters, you can also tag us @BBBSST on Twitter or Instagram, or on Facebook where we are BigBrothers BigSisters. If you're not on any of those social media sites, post anyway to honor your mentor and use #WhoMentoredYou. We'll be looking for stories everywhere. 

To recap: 

1.  HONOR YOUR CHILDHOOD MENTOR - Preserve the legacy of your mentor by writing a few sentences, post a picture or video from then or now of you and the person who you couldn't have made it without.

2.  POST THOSE STORIES on your favorite social media site using #WhoMentoredYou

3.  WE WILL COLLECT YOUR STORIES and show them at the Grand Opening of our new home!  Each mentor's story, photo, video will be included in a commemorative video and anyone who posts a story about his or her mentor will be invited to our opening night party!
