Expanding Our Reach
In the fall of 2016, Big Brothers Big Sisters created its first Big-Little matches in York County, South Carolina, at the new headquarters of LPL Financial. The company had participated in our Beyond School Walls program when its offices were in Charlotte and wanted to continue in the program after the move to Fort Mill. More than 20 of their employees are currently serving as mentors to Fort Mill Middle School students.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is also hoping to create traditional mentoring matches in York County in the near future, once we are able to build the infrastructure to support these matches. We have received many phone calls from this area over the years from potential Bigs and families of Littles, so we are excited to be able to start serving this new population of young people.
