Celebrating Austin mentors

January is National Mentoring Month and United Way Capital Area wants to celebrate our 1 Hour for Kids local mentors.

Meet David Robb, a correspondent at the Austin American Statesman, who has mentored through Big Brothers Big Sisters since November 2009.

Here’s what Big Brothers Big Sisters is saying about him:

“David has developed a good bond with his Little (Angel) through their mutual interest in sports.  Most days, you can find them at the park playing basketball or football. Over the last few months, Angel has been feeling more comfortable and confident around his Big brother and likes to joke around and talk about things going on in his life.  David not only encourages Angel to do well in school, he is a good role model on how important education is, as he is taking classes to become a teacher.  He also takes him to UT sporting events, a great way to introduce Angel to an aspect of college.  David goes above the 1 hour a week, often spending 2 to 3 hours on outings developing a strong foundation that is a positive influence on Angel’s life.”
