We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have Giving Tuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. It’s a simple idea. On Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017, just find a way for your family, your community, your company to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
Youth Services is seeking referrals of youth, ages 14-17, in need of extra support and career mentoring at Brattleboro Union High School and Bellows Falls Union High this year. RAMP meets once a week to connect students with professionals for career-focused mentoring and to encourage them to remain in school and set goals (Brattleboro typically meets after school on Tuesdays at 3:30 pm in the TIC conference room, and Bellows Falls meets during Terrier Time on Mondays.) Contact Susan Lawson Kelleher.
In the interest of serving more children in Vermont with mentors, Youth Services transitioned its successful Big Brothers Big Sisters program into a statewide organization named Big Brothers Big Sisters of Vermont with Youth Services’ previous Director of Mentoring, Kimberley Diemond, its Executive Director. Youth Services underwent a year-long process, with milestones, guided by a transition committee.To volunteer, call Big Brothers Big Sisters at (802) 257-0361, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.bbbsvt.org.
