Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa partners with local businesses for Workplace Mentoring. The 2021/2022 Workplace Mentoring Program will be conducted either in-person or virtual depending on the preference of the business.
Youth get exposure to a professional work environment and work on college and career exploration, skill development and building their relationship with their Big by just having fun and getting to know each other. This program encourages youth to begin envisioning the possibilities for their future while providing friendship and support through those difficult transition years of middle school.
For the 2020/2021 school year, the following local businesses are partnering with local middle schools for Workplace Mentoring:
- Hoyt Middle School and Principal
- Harding Middle School and NCMIC Group, Inc.
- Hiatt Middle School and GuideOne Insurance
- Stilwell Junior High School and IMT Insurance
This program is made possible through funding from Principal, NCMIC Group Inc., GuideOne Insurance, IMT Insurance, and Wells Fargo.
