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.
