Child of the Week: Robert

Robert-webCan you be a friend to a child that needs it? Your friendship can change a young boy’s life, For the Better. Forever!

Meet Robert, an upbeat 10 year old boy who likes to try new things and socialize with peers. An aspiring millionaire and BMX champion, Robert has endured many unfortunate hardships at a very early age. He also lacks the experience of having a positive male role in his life, so spending 8 hours a month with a Big Brother could truly open up new doors in his life!

A child with a huge heart, Robert enjoys riding his bike, reading, and playing with the other children in his neighborhood. Robert does not play any organized team sports, but is thinking about joining a team once he enters middle school. He attends a church youth group every Wednesday, and says that math is his favorite class because he likes adding and subtracting numbers.

If you take a look into this child’s eyes, you can see a dreamer who needs direction. There are hundreds of at-risk youth who need someone to have fun with, and let them know they are important!
