Ever thought about changing a child's life?

You can.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida has been the area's leader in mentoring service for more than 18 years and they can help you make a kid's childhood a little better!

Paula Shell, the CEO of BBBS NW Florida says her staff would love to see more men getting involved.

Mentors can be matched with children ages 6 to 18, the pair can do fun activities in the community - and just help the kids stay on track, as well as be a helpful hand.

The national organization has some figures to show how Big Brothers Big Sisters works. According to reports, 46 percent of the children it helps are less likely to begin using illegal drugs, 27 percent are less likely to begin using alcohol and 52 percent are less likely to skip school.
