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 email@example.com or visit www.bbbsvt.org.

Latin dancing has been an important part of Beatriz Fantini's entire life; studying ballet in her native Bolivia and pursuing Spanish and local folk dancing in Peru and Venezuela where she moved as an adolescent as a result of her father's diplomatic career.
In Philadelphia in 1963, Bea met her husband Alvino where they formed a dance troupe performed Bolvian, Mexican and Venezuelan dances at various venues. Dancing continued to follow her to SIT where she taught international folk dancing as well as Spanish and Hispanic Culture.
Now retired after 50 years of teaching, its no wonder that Bea jumped at the chance to put on her dancing shoes to perform the Latin dance, the Rumba with Matt Peake at Youth Services' benefit gala and dance show, "Can Windham County Dance?"
