Child of the Week

Everyone needs someone in their life to look up to. Do you remember the person who inspired you when you were a child? Someone who believed in you, more than you believed in yourself? 

Meet our child of the week, Elijah!

Elijah has been waiting for over a year to find a Big Brother!

Mom says he is a good big brother to his three siblings and is a great helper around the house. Mom thinks it would be great for Elijah to have a Big Brother so he can have some time that is just about him. She describes Elijah as a sweet and caring child and thinks he would love to learn new things with a Big Brother.

Elijah is energetic, sweet and shy. He loves to paint, draw and take pictures. He also loves sports and is quite a daredevil. He would love a Big Brother to explore and go on adventures with. He thinks it would be super cool if a Big could teach him things, maybe about art or building.

Women are great role models, but for a young boy who wants to talk about "guy stuff," a strong male influence is what they need." Make a difference in a boy's life, volunteer to become a Big Brother Today!

Join Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters today by becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister to a young person like Elijah! Just a few hours a couple times a month is all it takes to change a life. Contact Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters at 928-634-9789 or online at 

Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters is a volunteer and donor supported organization proven to help the most vulnerable children in our communities succeed through one-to-one relationships.
