By partnering with BBBSLC, companies are making an investment in the development of the next generation of leaders. Students are matched in one to one mentoring relationships with company employees who, through structured program activities, help map out the students’ futures. Each program day is designed and facilitated by a BBBSLC program manager. Program managers each hold a Bachelor’s Degree and are on-site to support mentoring matches.
A group of mentoring matches meets twice a month; once at the company and the other in a classroom setting with a Big Brothers Big Sisters Coordinator and School Staff. Our curriculum will have Scholars exploring various topics including skills such as perseverance, critical thinking, self-advocacy and goal setting. Other areas include college preparation, career goals, and planning for the future. Students will work with additional professionals aligned with the curriculum to address soft skills to ensure a strong professional foundation is established. The program will work with the identified students over their entire high school tenure.
