La Jolla, CA (PRWEB) August 8, 2009
An expert in building "win-win" business relationships, James Catledge has been invited to serve as a volunteer mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters programs in Southern California.
"I was mentored by great people through scouting and my church," said Catledge, who was raised by a single mother. "I know firsthand the positive difference a role model can make."
With the support of his wife Tiffany, an active volunteer in numerous California organizations, James Catledge is drawing on his years of experience in building mentoring relationships in business to help the children of Southern California.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is the largest and oldest youth mentoring organization in the United States and is the leader in one-to-one youth service for over a century - developing positive relationships that have a direct and lasting impact on the lives of young people.
National research has shown the positive relationships between youth and their Big Brothers and Big Sisters have a direct and measurable impact on children's lives. Little Brothers and Sisters are more confident, get along better with their families, and are less likely to use illegal drugs and alcohol.
