Starbucks Celebrates National Mentoring Month in a Big Way
In celebration of National Mentoring Month, Starbucks is partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies across Indiana, including Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana, for Big Appreciation Days in January!
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana (BBBSCI) is participating in Giving Tuesday on December 2, 2014. On this national day of giving, BBBSCI will be utilizing the opportunity to raise awareness of the BBBSCI mission and celebrate the impact on our community. Outreach efforts will turn to email and social media to engage Central Indiana in a one-day online fundraising campaign to support the creation of new mentoring relationships with a goal to attract 200 new donors in the 24-hour period.
To meet the demand for mentors in Central Indiana, BBBSCI is expanding its youth mentoring options. In addition to serving as a Big Brother or Big Sister, BBBS has encouraged adults to sign up with their spouse, partner, or significant other through the Big Couple program. Now, the agency has created a new option, called “Big Friends” which allows two people who have been in an active friendship or relationship (best friends, co-workers, parent and adult child, sister and brother, etc.), to mentor a child in the community together.
