Welcome to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Regions’ blog! As a staff, we were inspired by the #DearYoungPerson conversations and decided to use this space to talk to the young members of our community. To start out, we’ll be offering advice to our younger selves. We’ll feature what we wish we’d known or what we wish someone else had told us as we were growing up.
We’ll also link to other good advice we find online. Eventually, we plan to answer questions from Littles and youth in the community. We hope that someday they’ll be the ones answering questions for us!
Our first piece of advice comes from our Program Director, Geraldine. She says: “Listen to your feelings and learn about healthy boundaries. You will probably have to search and ask for support from others when learning about this and that is okay! There will be people there to help you.”
