05 Dec Feature Organization: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound
Have you seen the Seattle Times’ article discussing Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound?
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound creates bonds that can last into adulthood and is part of The Seattle Times Fund For The Needy. It has a few school-based programs, including “MentorU,” starting this year at West Seattle High School. Mentors there will help guide students academically, including with choices about college. Most matches follow a more free-flowing structure. The organization asks that “Bigs” meet with their “Littles” at least four hours a month. What they do is up to them.
Did you hear about the award? Congratulations to Jolynn Kenney, Vice President of Puget Sound Big Brothers Big Sisters, for receiving the Skip Walsh Award at its National Conference. The award is given to the Big Brothers Big Sisters executive who, through excellence in his or her own agency work and generosity, provided resources, support and encouragement to colleagues and has strengthened BBBS’ mentoring services to children.
