January’s Volunteer of the Month
Jeff is a Big Brother through Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sioux Empire. He volunteers not only his time but also his guidance and support.
During Jeff’s time with his Little Brother Tristen, the two have participated in various activities in the community as well as spending one-on-one time discussing life and goals.
Jeff has been a Big Brother with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sioux Empire since 2009, and has successfully been matched with his Little Brother Tristen for over seven years.
Little Brother Tristen had a rocky start to life, but after being matched with Big Brother Jeff they've worked together to build Tristen's confidence and improve his grades in school.
Tristen is now involved in band, choir as well as Native American Connections, and has become an avid reader and writer, excelling in both subjects.
