Little of the Week: Matt from Howell

Little brother in need of positive male role model.

I’m Matt from Howell.   

I’m 12 and never really got to “hang out” with guys, so I didn’t do lots of guy stuff. I didn’t know my dad until I was six. 

Joining the Big Brothers Big Sisters program was great because I got to hang out with a guy I could relate to. We enjoyed going to a movie or just talking. My Big Brother was my ideal match because he was funny, loved to have fun, and gave me confidence. 

We were matched for a year before he went to college. Saying goodbye was tough. I would really like to get another Big Brother.

If you would like to be Matt’s Big Brother or a child in your area, call Big Brothers Big Sisters of Livingston County at 517-546-1140 and start something good, today.
