((BOB)) RIGHT NOW BIG BROTHERS

AND BIG SISTERS OF CENTRAL

ARKANSAS IS IN NEED OF MEN

"BIGS." OUR ASHLEI KING

INTRODUCES US TO A NEW PROGRAM

THE AGENCY IS USING TO HELP

PROMOTE BIG BROTHERS BIG

SISTERS... WHILE ALSO TEACHING

VOLUNTEERS ABOUT LEADERSHIP.

MARK HAMBY AND HIS "LITTLE"

JOSH HUNTER HAVE A BOND LIKE

NO OTHER. THEY MET ABOUT SIX

YEARS AGO THROUGH BIG BROTHERS

BIG SISTERS OF CENTRAL

ARKANSAS. AND WE FIRST MET

THEM IN NOVEMBER OF 20á18.

Mark Hamby, Big Brother: "I

look forward to every time

we're together and we go to

the gym and lift weights, we

go to the movies, we go get

something to eat. We're just

hanging out." Joshua Hunter,

Little Brother: "Mark is a

great big brother and I realthank him for a lot." RIGHT

NOW.. THERE ARE NEARLY 70 BOYS

ON THE LIST WAITING TO BE

MATCHED WITH A "BIG" IN

CENTRAL ARKANSAS. Tanya

Langley, BBBS Board Member: "I

believe mentoring is reayjust being there to spark and

ignite the passion within that

invididual." BECAUSE THERE IS

A GREAT NEED FOR MENTORS...

TANYA LANGLEY AND FELLOW BIG

BROTHERS BIG SISTERS BOARD

MEMBER AMY STEWART ARE

STARTING A PROGRAM CALLED THE

"DEFENDERS OF POTENTIAL

ADVOCACY AND LEADERSHIP

DEVELOPMENT." THEY'RE ASKING

PROFESSIONALS, COLLEGE AND

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO

PROMOTE BIG BROTHERS BIG

SISTERS. AND IN RETURN... THEY

GET (FREE( LEADERSHIP

TRAINING. Amy Stewart, BBBS

Board member: "We really want

to give back to them. We don't

just ask you to come in, raise

money for us, volunteer for us

and we do nothing for you."

THE DEFENDERS IS AN

EIGHTáMONTH PROGRAM. YOU'LL BE

REQUIRED TO MEET VOLUNTEER AND

FUNDRAISING GOALS WHICH IS

IMPORTANT... BECAUSE ONE "BIG"

AND "LITTLE" MATCH COSTS THE

ORGANIZATION ABOUT 15áHUNDRED

DOLLARS. Tracy Matson, BBBS

Executive Director: "We just

wanna have a positive impacton the community. It's such a

great need. I love the

community so much and I really

feel like when you invest in

the youth of central Arkansas,

you're making an investment in

the future an it'll be long

reaching and you'll be able to

see the results for years and

years and years." AND WHEN YOU

SEE MARK AND JOSH'S

RELATIONSHIP... IT'S CLEAR THE

TWO WILL POSITIVELY IMPACT

EACH OTHER AND THE COMMUNITY

FOR YEARS TO COME. IF YOU'RE

INTERESTED IN JOINING THE

"DEFENDERS" PROGRAM... IT'S

IMPORTANT TO KNOW YOU WILL

(NOT( BE A "BIG" WHILE IN THE

PROGRAM. BIG BROTHERS BIG
