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 next 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.LawsonKelleher@youthservicesinc.org or call 802-257-0361.
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.
Youth Services is blessed with outstanding and devoted board members. Rick Hashagen, retired President of Vermont National Bank, stepped down this summer after serving as the organization's treasurer for many of his 17 years on the board!
