Manager, School-Based Mentoring

    The best part of my job is watching matches in our workplace mentoring programs develop their friendships over multiple years.  The Littles are always a little nervous walking into a corporate environment for their first meeting, but you can quickly see the change as they get to know their Big over time.  After a year of visits, some Littles walk into the corporations like THEY work there – confident and excited!  Our Beyond School Walls model not only develops meaningful one-to-one relationships between students and business professionals, but it also allows an opportunity for students to see different office environments.  We encourage Bigs to talk with their Littles about their jobs and what it took them to get there!
