Little Brother Zach and Big Brother Chad were matched in the Mentor 2.0 program during Zach’s freshman year. Chad and Zach quickly bonded over their love of the outdoors, animals, and recreational activities, such as mountain biking. Their bond deepened when Zach realized Chad bore a striking resemblance to his childhood idol, Chuck Norris.
Chad was a Little Brother himself and has been so impressed by Zach’s growth from a shy, homeschool transfer to the young man he is today. Chad says, “I’m continually impressed by Zach’s maturity. He is reflective and observant, similar to my own personality. I’m so lucky to have Zach, someone that is willing to do his work, connect, and have conversations.” Chad says he looks forward to helping Zach achieve his goals of becoming a police officer and to seeing their relationship grow over the next three years.
