"Big Brothers Big Sisters’ richer engagement in the community through these partnerships is not only leading to the recruitment of more African American male mentors, it’s a way to add to the diversity of local agency board members, energize mentoring advocacy and attract donors," Long said.  "I am proud that through grassroots efforts such as barbershop recruiting and fraternity convention outreach, we’re supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters’ careful mentor matching and ongoing support for volunteers, children and parents.  My goal is to enhance Big Brothers Big Sisters’ ability to assist families that want to see their children succeed and break negative cycles too often linked to their communities," he added.
