Big Brother & Sister Program


Help Mentor an Indian Child & Help Foster in a generation free of abuse.
Do You Have Time, Skills & Spiritual Patience to Mentor a Young Indian Boy or Girl?

This program will not only save a child, but save a family from future Spousal, Drug & Alcohol abuse. Further, the program will help fight school dropout rates. Give a child greater self-esteem, confidence in their schoolwork performance, and are able to get along better with their friends and families.

Help break the abuse cycle by being a positive role model in a young Indian boy or girls life. Role models come in all shapes and sizes. They are small business owners, fathers or mothers with others children, fireman, teachers, lawyers, executives. Some have college degrees while some don’t even have a high school diploma. You just have to want to make a positive impact on the life of a child.

Maybe they come from single parent homes or live in a neglected or abusive environment, maybe they are falling into bad patterns at school, maybe they are the only boy in a house with three sisters. What they all share in common is the need for friendship with a caring adult. Each child needs a positive role model to impact his or her life.

Show them the true meaning of the words Honor, Respect, Honesty, Humility, Family, Clan, Culture and more for themselves and others by spending valuable time with them.

Too many American Indian boys & girls throughout Indian county are at risk of dropping out of school, getting involved in drugs and alcohol, including gangs--losing their way. They are more likely to complete high school in prison than go to college. Having a Big Brother who can guide them and help them make positive choices will change their lives and make our communities stronger.

Bring spiritual healing and balance to a young life will not only be fulfilling for the child, but for their family as well and their culture. Have a direct, measurable, and lasting impact on Indian children and their families.

The program will involve traditional group activities with adults and young Indian boys and girls. Just playing games, eating out for a meal, taking a walk to cultural sites or educational facilities or to nature, or just hang out and talk. Allow them to see how an adult conducts themselves in a social setting and share your experiences and wisdom.
