My daughter and I found out about a really interesting program a few months ago. It is the Big Brothers, Big Sisters Military Mentoring program. It is for kids who are ages 9-14 yrs and who have to deal with the issues that only military kids have to deal with (deployments, loss of a parent, medical or mental health problems from war, moving a lot, making new friends, etc.). This program is ONLY for military children, and it is not to be confused with the program for at-risk youth! To find out more, please contact the Anniston Big Brothers, Big Sisters office, or check out this link http://www.bbbs.org/site/c.9iILI3NGKhK6F/b.5961595/k.BE7F/Military_Mentoring.htm.
