CHILD OF THE WEEK: Darrell needs a 'Big' to ride bikes with

Seven-year-old Darrell rides his bike around and around his Prescott yard. It's hard going on the bumpy ground and the gravel driveway, but even with the challenges he does terrific wheelies. He'd like to ride in more interesting places but, of course, needs a grownup to supervise him. He'd also like to learn how to put the chain back in place on his mini-Harley, since he and his mom don't know how. He loves riding the Harley, and his skateboard, too. He'd like to do motocross.

Darrell is up for almost anything fun. He does like fishing. He thinks he'd like soccer, baseball and basketball and bowling. He probably would like to see a hockey game. He did go to a Monster Trucks show and had a ball.

Mom says he can "go and go and go." But Darrell also "likes to build things and do stuff with his hands." In first grade he's a good student, especially in math.

Darrell is really looking forward to having a grownup man as a friend interested in some of the same activities. Waiting about a year, Darrell is ready for someone to step up and be his Big.

Darrell is one of nearly 400 kids waiting for a couple, family or individual to mentor them in any number of programs designed to meet your needs as well as his. After more than 100 years of mentoring, we've figured out how to fit your schedule and lifestyle - give Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters a call and find out how easy it can be to watch a "Little" go a long way. Be part of the solution!
