Become a mentor, change a life


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Fifty boys are on a waiting list to be accepted for the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. They would be accepted immediately, however, there is a huge lack of male mentors.

The shortage is not only a Rhode Island problem, but an issue facing BBBS programs across the country. Volunteers like father and businessman Bob Oresman have made life-changing impacts on multiple children in Rhode Island.

From teaching life-long lessons, to trying new activities, meeting new friends, practicing basketball, taking it lots of sporting events and a whole lot more, Oresman was matched with an energetic young man named Jayden.
