In 2007, Blake Boznansky '98, began volunteering at Big Brothers and Sisters of the Bay Area. BBS's mission is to help children reach their potential through one-on-one relationships with people who can serve as inspirational and positive role models.
Over the past four years, Boznansky has served as a big brother to Seth - a child whose father has never been present in his life. Boznansky takes comfort in watching Seth grow and become smarter with each passing day.
"Seth is currently 9 years old and lives in a household with a single mother and three other siblings, but has no father figure," explains Boznansky. "It has meant a lot to him for me to be a part of his life. It doesn't take much time or effort to change someone's life forever; so I would definitely recommend doing some sort of volunteer work as it will pay off for yourself and the people you are helping out."
