Dustin Alt, a junior at Stephen Decatur High School, spends part of one day each month at Atlantic General Hospital.
He is not ill and he is not getting medical tests. He is being mentored by a hospital employee who is participating in the workplace mentoring program of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Chesapeake.
Dustin, 16, first heard about Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Chesapeake from his school guidance counselor who recommended it and he liked the idea.
“I’d been wanting to have more people to talk to,” said Dustin, who lives in Ocean Pines with his mother, stepfather and sister.
