K’von’s mother enrolled him in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami because she knew the impact it could have—her older daughter received a scholarship from BBBSM.
When K’von found out he was going to have a Big Brother in 2016, he was so excited that he continually texted his Big Brother Josh from his mother’s phone – texts so precious that Josh saved them.
Since then their relationship blossomed. From teaching him to swim, to getting to interact with dolphins in the Keys, they’ve had a blast. Josh, who’s been a Big Brother three times, has even showed his 15-year-old son the importance of mentoring.
“I truly believe that the best way to help yourself is to help someone else,” says Josh.
Little Brother K’von continues to grow exponentially in confidence and regularly looks forward to spending time with his Big Brother. While K’von has had to move around a lot, Big Brother Josh continues to be the strong male role model K’von’s mother wanted for him.
