The mentorship programs offered by Big Brothers Big Sisters dramatically improve outcomes for underprivileged children, and we’re calling on the San Antonio community to help us support them.
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) July 27, 2015
Continuing their ongoing community improvement campaign, Shacklett Insurance Team, a locally owned insurance firm with offices serving the greater San Antonio area, is launching a joint charity effort with the South Texas chapter of the Big Brother Big Sister Organization.
The Big Brother Big Sister Organization of South Texas is committed to serving underprivileged and poverty-stricken children in San Antonio and the surrounding communities. Many of these children have single parent families, and recent research provided by BBBS reveals that young adults from such families are far more likely to struggle with substandard academic results.
Big Brother Big Sister of South Texas works to break this cycle with a mentorship program that utilizes volunteer adults from the local community. These mentors provide children with support, encouragement, and guidance to improve educational outcomes and sharpen social skills. Children who participate in Big Brother Big Sister programs are more likely to stay in school and graduate, avoid substance use or abuse, and enjoy an improved self-image that will lead to healthier relationships.
“Big Brothers and Big Sisters does a tremendous amount of good for the San Antonio community,” says Alfred Shacklett, owner and manager Shacklett Insurance Team. “The mentorship programs offered by Big Brothers Big Sisters dramatically improve outcomes for underprivileged children, and we’re calling on the San Antonio community to help us support them.”
Utilizing an extensive list of contacts, the Shacklett Insurance team is drawing in support from friends, families, business associates, and clients alike as they work to raise awareness and gather funds to support the Big Brother Big Sister charity. The Shacklett team is also in the process of creating on online presence via social media channels in an effort to pull in supporters from throughout the state.
Shacklett and his team aren’t stopping with the Big Brother Big Sister Organization – as part of an ongoing community improvement effort, Shacklett Insurance is commited to support a new local charity every 60 days over the months ahead.
