A Rites of passage is a journey. Our boys learn mostly from watching and emulating us. We, the caring adults in their lives, must embody the same principles we seek to implant in them. Volunteering is a rites of passage lesson that is better observed than discussed. I seek to do more volunteering. If you don’t volunteer already start. You have no excuse especially as we approach the holiday season. Get out of yourself and help someone else.

If you live in Miami-Dade or Broward County and have a child between the 9th – 12th grades check out the Leaders of Tomorrow program I volunteer with. Our new program year kicks off soon.

If your son or daughter would benefit from a direct approach to mentoring Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Miami is an awesome program. I have a friend that is a VP within the organization and they are constantly looking for more adult volunteers to be Bigs.

In honor of my grandmother Annie Milledge, she passed away June 15, 2011; I am participating in the Step Out – Walk to Stop Diabetes walk-a-thon on November 5, 2011. My granny lived with the disease for decades.

You can support my walk. Visit my page and make a donation from your heart. Your donation will honor your friend or love one that also battled diabetes. Thanks in advance to those that donate.

If we want our sons to develop a heart of volunteerism they must first see it in us. Whether or not you support the Step Out – Walk to Stop Diabetes walk-a-thon or volunteer as a Big with Big Brothers Big Sisters do something to give back regularly. You become a better person for it. You train your son in giving back and our world is filled with lots more love and positive energy.

Peace,
