SHEBOYGAN, WI - Big Brothers Big Sisters of WI Shoreline (BBBS) is teaming up with Hall of Famer LeRoy Butler and the NFL Inspire Change initiative to empower youth through mentorship. While the NFL is drafting the next generation of players, BBBS is drafting the next generation of mentors.

"I'm honored to partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters of WI Shoreline to help empower youth through mentorship," Butler said. "As a former professional athlete, I know firsthand the impact that a positive role model can have on a young person's life. By drafting more mentors, especially men, we can help give kids, the tools they need to reach their full potential and achieve their dreams."
