Strada Education Network has been a partner of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana (BBBSCI) since the early 2000’s. In 2018, BBBSCI and Strada Education Network established a unique partnership to forge clearer and more purposeful pathways between education and employment supporting all youth to achieve their full potential. Since that time, Strada Education Network has been a cornerstone sponsor of the Big Futures: Career and College Readiness program, supported hundreds of BBBSCI mentoring relationships, and provided multi-year scholarships to four graduating Littles! Thank you, Strada, for your innovative and enduring support.

Strada Education Network is a nonprofit dedicated to helping people take advantage of education and training after high school that helps them secure a good job, do meaningful work, contribute to their communities, and lead a fulfilling life. We believe education and training after high school have the potential to be the most powerful and equitable ways to help all people thrive in their careers and lives. To help students succeed beyond completion of a certificate or degree, we conduct research, make charitable grants and social impact investments, and support Strada-owned nonprofits CAEL, Education at Work, InsideTrack, and Roadtrip Nation that directly serve learners and workers.
