None of us could have predicted what would happen over the past year. Fortunately, we are in the process of returning to a new sense of normalcy, and with that comes the opportunity to re-commit to your role as a Big. As you are planning for your “new normal,” make sure to carve out space and time for your Little. It is never too late for a fresh start!
We often picture reunions as being easy and exciting, but, similar to a high school reunion, getting together with friends you haven’t seen in a while can be awkward at first. It is understandable that reconnecting with your Little after being separated by COVID restrictions may have you feeling stuck or unsure of where to start, but Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee is here to help.
One year ago, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee pivoted to virtual operations as a result of the global pandemic. And while that pivot brought with it many new changes and challenges, one thing that stayed the same was our laser focus on youth. Our team quickly, yet effectively went into full creativity and innovation mode to achieve so many incredible things that, through the generosity of our supporters, have enabled us to continue to serve our youth as well as scale the impact of our mentoring programs.
