Juan Needs a Mentor

Juan needs a mentor – is that you or someone you know? Contact www.slobigs.org for more information.

Juan is a 12 year old Hispanic male. He lives in a low income neighborhood of Paso Robles with his mother and siblings. He is a reserved, quiet teen. It is hard for Juan to make eye contact when first meeting people; his self-esteem is very low. Juan’s stepfather and his mother are now separated. The step-father mistreated and rejected Juan when he lived in the home. Juan still got attached to him as he was the only father figure he had. Juan likes music, and riding his bike. He would like to go to the park and to the beach with his Big.
