Goodwill Community Partner Feature: Big Brothers Big Sisters

By Alana Sesow

At Goodwill, we believe in the power of community.

Not only does Goodwill create and fund life-changing employment services, like those offered for free at our Job Connection Center, but we also provide funding to peer agencies that help local job seekers overcome traditional barriers to employment. Through our community partnerships, we can better fulfill our mission: “willing workers employed and community resources maximized.”

Big Brothers Big Brothers Big Sisters exists to bring awareness to the importance of mentoring and to change young people’s lives. They create one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

Through funding support from Goodwill, the agency offers extended employment preparation and career exploration in its one-to-one mentoring program. Bigs and Littles can further explore careers and employment skills at Goodwill’s Job Connection Center.

“The impact is phenomenal,” said Amber Nore, Director of Community Engagement. “We are so thankful and incredibly grateful for the partnership with Goodwill and Big Brothers Big Sisters.”
