Big Chase and Little Michael

BIG CHASE AND LITTLE MICHAEL

Matched since 2020

Big Brother Chase and Little Brother Michael met in March of 2020, just prior to the start of the Covid-19 Pandemic. They are from Monroe County, Little Brother Michael started the mentoring program hoping for a male role model that he could look up to and spend time with. While Big Brother Chase, hoped for a chance to share a similar mentor-mentoree relationship, which he received at a young age in his life. Both enjoy being active, exploring new things and share a sense of sarcasm which brings a lot of jokes and laughs. “My time spent with my little and watching him grow and learn is extremely gratifying, and gives me a sense of purpose I didn’t have before” – Big Brother Chase Mattioli.

Although they are 20 years apart in age, Chase and Michael have created a bond of shared activities such as cooking, snowboarding, and swimming “Chase has definitely stepped up as a mentor and role model to Michael. Chase’s influence has been life-changing for Michael, and I wish I could replicate him 100x’s over throughout the BBBS program.”- Jennifer (Little Brother Michael’s mother)
