Bernadette and Kyah

Big Sister Bernadette and Little Sister Kyah started as a match in our site-based program. After three years they decided to transition into our community-based program so they could spend more time together. This photo is from one of their first match outings as a community-based match. They took part in a Big Brothers Big Sisters event at an art gallery.

Kyah was enrolled in the program in order to get positive one-to-one attention – someone to listen and encourage her to do better academically.

Bernadette is passionate about helping the youth in our community and is hoping to teach her Little the importance of education as well as establishing career goals for herself.  Bernadette is also a regional board member.
