Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana Expanding Mentoring Program

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana officials say a new mentoring
program launched this school year has been a success and will be expanded next year.

It’s called School to Work, and spokeswoman Kristin Milosevich
says it initially matched 15 Seneca High School students with mentors from
Price Waterhouse Coopers and Humana.

“The whole concept of school to work is that it actually puts high school students who are, will benefit from a one-to-one mentoring relationship in the workplace on the path to getting their first job, going on to college.”

Milosevich says Big Brothers Big Sisters hopes to match as many as 75 students from across Jefferson County Public Schools with mentors in the workplace for the next academic year.
