7-30 Mike Bosma sits down with Brittani Keefe of Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Northern Nevada

dt.common.streams.StreamServerBig Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada has been making meaningful, professionally supported matches between adult volunteers (Bigs) and at-risk children (Littles) in our community since 2001. The impact of the program can be seen each year during high school graduation. 86 percent of age-eligible Littles graduate high school, compared with 65 percent of their similarly disadvantaged peers in Washoe County. In support of the mentoring programs, BBBSNN is hosting a fundraising event on August 11th called Over The Edge.

We also had a special guest on the show, Maila Nakumara, who told us about her community involvement and the benefits of a big sister.
