Baby boomers, empty nesters say you don't have to be young to
help young people
from Omaha World-Herald
You don't have to be young and hip to be a Big Brother or a Big Sister. Well ... maybe sort of hip would be good. For six years, 15-year-old Matthew has been the Little Brother of Mary Hamilton and Jack White, a Big Couple. Hamilton is 69, and White is 81. Are they too old? No, said Jim Frederick, director of marketing and recruitment for Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands, Neb. That's a common misconception, he said. "Actually, many of our most successful matches are with baby boomers or empty nesters."
