Calling all Big Brothers Big Sisters’ alumni! Maybe you’re a former Little, Big, parent/guardian or board member. Whatever the case may be, we hope that your involvement with the organization has benefitted you in ways you can’t even begin to describe.
I want to personally welcome you to the Alumni Network! You may be thinking to yourself: Big Brothers Big Sisters has an alumni program? The answer is YES! We are set to launch our new and improved Alumni Network next month in January!
The Alumni Network is committed to engaging with alumni for the purpose of giving voice to and building momentum for our mission, raising financial support for our vital community-based mentoring program and providing opportunities for networking. By leveraging the participation of our alumni and all those passionate about our program, we ensure that our youth will have the opportunities they need to achieve their biggest possible futures.
For those who have already specified an interest in joining, you should expect to see an envelope in your mailbox after the first of the year. If you would like to be included in that mailing, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 402-905-3331. I will be sending everyone who’s interested a packet filled with various components – a welcome letter, ways to re-engage with Big Brothers Big Sisters and how you can connect to other alumni through our Facebook group. You can also expect a phone call from me. I just want to say “hello” and see how I can help you stay connected to the organization. You are a part of our BBBS family, and we are very excited to see what you’re up to now!
Our January launch corresponds with National Mentoring Month and the start to our 60th year serving kids in the metro. Coincidence? I think not! We are very grateful to have the opportunity to work with the families, volunteers, community partners and everyone else invested in our mission. As we enter into 2019, we look forward to reconnecting with you, and together, we can empower potential within even more kids in our community!
