Dylon-Robertson-webWhen you look into a child’s eyes you can see a glimmer of hope. Children are dreamers, who can achieve whatever they want with a little help. Giving 8 hours a month can turn a child’s dream into reality. 

Meet Dylon, an 11 year old 5th grader who is being raised by his grandparents due to family instability. Dylon could really benefit from a consistent Big Brother willing to stick with him through Middle School, and High School.

Spending 8 hours a month with a Big Brother can mold Dylon into the successful man he wants to become.
