David Miller is VA’s Male Volunteer of the Year. A Marine Corp Veteran, Miller served in Vietnam during the TET II offensive with 3rd Marine Division (9th Marines).
Miller says he got involved in volunteering, “Due to the fact that the Vietnam Veterans were ignored and mistreated and misdiagnosed for years after they returned home. I just wanted to make positive experiences to help all Veterans and also to help them with their issues for health and benefits.
Big Brothers Big Sisters Association of California (BBBS AC) is launching its first-ever, state-wide initiative centered on the recruitment of male volunteers to become Big Brothers. Across the state, Big Brothers Big Sisters is experiencing a critical need for men to volunteer. With an average of nearly 70% boys on the waiting list for mentors and only 3 out of 10 new volunteers are men, boys are waiting an average of 275 days before receiving a Big Brother.
