Julian is 8 years old and lives in Centerville. A shortage of volunteers on the mid-cape has left him on the waiting list for over a year and a half. Julian is thoughtful, creative and caring. The best thing about getting a Big Brother would be “to have somebody to play with”, says Julian. He also enjoys playing video games, arts and crafts, bike riding, and learning new sports. He most recently received a Titanic model kit from his grandma he hopes his Big Brother will help him put together. Julian would benefit from a Big Brother and having an additional, positive adult in his life to help boost his confidence and help him explore new interests.
