Big Brothers Big Sisters partners with Barry University
Developing mentoring relationships to support youth has become even more critically important for Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Miami during the pandemic. Despite having to pivot to e-mentoring and weekly food distribution events, the organization continues to tailor programming and dedicate resources to youth and families.
“Even in the midst of a pandemic, there are still creative ways to engage our kids,” said Gale Nelson, organization president and CEO.
Some of that creative programming has included a sushi-making workshop at Sushi Maki; a Love of Play toy drive sponsored by Hasbro; and Wild About Our Littles, a sightseeing event sponsored by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, scheduled to take place next month.
