The following blog entry is excerpted from Big Sister Association of Greater Boston's match application to participate in the pre-game activities for Mentoring Night at Fenway Park.
13-year-old Leilani from Big Sister Association of Greater Boston had the honor of announcing the NESN starting lineup for the Red Sox-Indians game during Mentoring Night at Fenway Park on May 24. The game helped kickoff the annual Red Sox Mentoring Challenge, an initiative designed to recruit more caring adults as mentors.
Leilani has been matched with her mentor Talia for 10 months. Not only do they love to cook, they share the spirit of giving back to their community by volunteering at food banks and Cradles to Crayons. Throughout their match, Talia has helped Leilani’s sense of self-confidence and awareness of her future goals.
