Strada Education Network is a longstanding partner to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana as the Big Potential Sponsor of the Big Futures: Career & College Readiness Program. In 2018, Strada Education Network created a unique and sustainable partnership with BBBSCI through a shared priority to invest in the success of Littles beyond high school graduation and forge more purposeful pathways between education and employment. This partnership has allowed for enhanced programing for the 400 high school-aged matches BBBSCI serves annually and in addition, Strada Education Network awards one Little in the BBBSCI graduating class a multi-year scholarship – The Big Potential Award. The goal of the Big Potential Award is to cultivate interest in career and college readiness and invest in a Little beyond graduation from our program. Grace Findley, Vice President of Philanthropic Partnerships, Strada Education Network, serves as a member of the BBBSCI Board of Directors. Thank you, Strada Education Network for your impact on the BBBSCI mission!
