Big Brother Irwin helps Little Brother Luis stay focused in school


Big Brother Irwin and Little Brother Luis were matched in October 2013. When asked what they liked most about being a Big and Little Brother, Luis stated “We do fun things” and Irwin stated “Watching Luis mature.” This pair enjoys all kinds of activities together. Eating is their #1 favorite activity, followed by “homework,” “playing games,” “movies” and “going to the beach.”

A typical 7-year-old, Luis needed a little guidance on behavior and staying focused in school, which is why his mom reached out for a Big Brother. Since being matched with Irwin, Luis’s grades have improved and he has more discipline. Irwin stated being a Big has impacted his life by “having someone depend on me and look forward to my company.”
