Did You Know Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Had a Mentor?

Big Brothers Big Sisters

That’s right folks, he sure did.  Three to be exact. Besides being a leader of the Civil Rights Movement, a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, and a member of one of our three national partners and historically African American Fraternities (Alpha Phi Alpha),  Dr. King was, and still is, an inspiration to us all. His words, wisdom, and courage inspired many to reach out and lend a helping hand to those in need. Similarly, Big Brothers Big Sisters aspires to lend a helping hand to the local at-risk youth and assist them in reaching their fullest potential in life.

Who knows, the next President, Dr. King, or great leader may be a part of our program right now, and waiting to recognize their mentor’s impact on their life someday!
