Meet our August Match of the Month!

Big Sister Kenzie and Little Brother Andrew were first matched at New Lexington Elementary in 2016. Andrew is one of four siblings living with their grandparents and the one-on-one time he received was invaluable. They went on a brief hiatus when Kenzie graduated high school and went away to train for the National Guard. Now that Kenzie is back, she and Andrew have transitioned to a community-based match. Kenzie feels like this transition has really helped their match relationship as now they get to go on new adventures together and try things outside of a school setting! So far, they have gone fishing, spent time at the park playing basketball, and joined other matches on BBBS’ summer trip to Cedar Point! Kenzie has worked to make this a relationship that fosters trust and feels like they are getting to a point that they feel like they can talk about anything.
