Kendrick Bourne and Devin Asiasi Help Big Brothers Big Sisters Raise Awareness About Mentoring

Now Bourne is helping inspire others to do the same with the reach he has, entering his sixth season in the NFL.

As an honorary board member of Big Brothers Big Sisters East of the Masse, he is aware of its strategic priorities, raises awareness of the organization on social media and offers his own input.

“Kendrick is really focused on getting out there and helping us recruit — especially more men — to be Bigs for the boys. It’s a real need in the city,” O’Donnell said. “There are a lot more female volunteers than male volunteers and Kendrick wanted to take on that with us. He wanted to get involved. He wanted to be a leader for the young people in town who could look at him and say, you know, he is part of Big Brothers Big Sisters, so remove any stigma of needing a mentor or wanting a mentor. And if Kendrick is there, I want to be there too. Same goes for Devin.

The work won’t stop there, however.

With two annual golf tournaments now on the books, Bourne is planning a youth soccer camp with the nonprofit in hopes of inspiring others to become mentors.

“Our platform is great and we can use it to help others,” Bourne said. “If I could start it and help others come along, then I’m going to use my platform to start the fire.”
