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