School-To-Work

School-to-Work is a three-way partnership between the local school districts, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay and our corporate and community partners to provide one-on-one mentoring in the workplace for high school juniors and seniors to help improve graduation rates. The students (Littles) visit the workplace of the employees (Bigs) one morning each month during the school year for about four hours. They spend the first hour learning post-graduation skills, then spend one-on-one time with their corporate Bigs through lunch before returning to school. Partners for the 2020-2021 school year include Jabil, the City of Tampa, Moffitt Cancer Center, Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, St. Petersburg Police Department, Tech Data, Nielsen, Pinellas County Administration, Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, Datis, Greenberg Traurig and the Pinellas State Attorney’s Office. To learn more, contact Jennifer Libby at JenniferL@bbbstampabay.org

Bigs In Blue/Bigs with Badges

Bigs in Blue/Bigs with Badges is a national initiative designed to improve communication and understanding between law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve. Police officers and civilian staff (Bigs) visit an area child (Littles) at their school one hour per week to spend one-on-one mentoring time. The program was launched locally with the Tampa Police Department, where more than 35 officers and personnel are matched with elementary school children in Hillsborough County. Law enforcement agencies also have the option to host a School-to-Work program. For more information, contact Jack Sheppard at 727-420-4338 or JackS@bbbstampabay.org

Big Futures

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay’s Big Futures program serves Alumni Littles up to age 26 and their Mentors with additional support and guidance in helping Littles make educational and career choices. The goal of the Big Futures program is that our Alumni Littles will be enrolled, employed or enlisted after high school so they earn a living wage by age 26 through goal setting and accountability, resources that align with their goals, skill building workshops and special events, and developing community relationships that result in unique education and career opportunities for Mentees. We are building an army of professionals in our community to rally around our youth! Contact Dallas Ruffin, DallasR@BBBSTampaBay or 813-769-3618, to discuss how you and your organization can ignite the potential of our Mentees’ Big Futures.
