PV Child of the Week: Brandon

Brandon-Hankla_webIsn’t it amazing how much of a difference one person can make? From being an inspiration to simply being a friend, the opportunity to change a life is just a phone call away. Yavapai Big Brothers and Big Sisters all share one common quality, the passion to make a difference.

Brandon is a comical and compassionate 14 year old with a dream to soar the skies as an airplane pilot. An undiagnosed medical condition keeps him from attending public school, which means he is home alone upwards of 12 hours per day. However, his spirit stays full with energy and drive. Brandon needs a male Big to help him grow into the man he wants to be.

Brandon is a talented musician, and excels in school. He is also athletic, and enjoys walking, exercising, and hanging out with friends. Brandon wants a Big to do activities such as soccer, football, camping, swimming, go-carts, bike riding, bowling, and the movies.

If you are worried with the amount of time it takes to be a Big, don’t be! 8 hours a month is all you need to change a child’s life. By simply incorporating them into your schedule, you can give a child the value of positive friendship. Get your family involved by welcoming a Little into your Family. Join an organization that requires no cost, little time, and matches you with a child based on your interests.
