Friends Forever

Big sister Tami was matched with Amy in 2011, when Tami, a teacher, was looking to mentor somewhere that she could develop a true friendship, saying “I believe that the BBBS program provides the opportunity for mentors to show kids love and the meaning of what it is to be kind to one another.” Little sister Amy is now a 6th grader in Dayton public Schools. Tami and Amy enjoy baking cookies together and see each other at weekly church services. Tami also shared, “I got married this summer and Amy was able to do a reading at the wedding. You want the people in your wedding to be people you’re going to see forever so you can look back on pictures and see someone you still have a relationship with… We are sisters.”
