Elijah is an observant, caring and outgoing 13-year-old who is growing up with his mother, Megan. Megan signed her son up for Big Brothers Big Sisters to help provide him with someone to look up to. “I really liked the fact that there are people out there that care for these youth and can be a positive role model for these children,” Megan says.
Elijah was matched with his Big Brother, William, in July 2017, and the two have since found many things they enjoy doing together. “My favorite thing about William is that he likes sports like me,” says Elijah. Elijah and William can frequently be found watching the Kings play at Golden 1 Center, or attending our Match Activities.
“Since being matched with William, Elijah has been much happier,” says Megan. Both Elijah and his Big Brother look forward to continuing their match, and creating many new memories together!
