Seven students at Roosevelt High School were honored Monday for committing to a six-year program of mentorship with Big Brothers Big Sisters. These seniors have been followed from the seventh grade under the guidance of a big brother or sister.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Texas is expanding into the workplace with its Inspire U program which places ‘Littles’ with “Bigs’ on the job.
Inspire U isn’t new, but it is growing. Part of the SA2020 Initiative, the program enhances the little brother and sister experience by taking middle and high school students paring them with someone in the working world.
