Meet the Ambassador Monday!

Ambassador, Ken Parker, is self-employed and lives in Grand Blanc. Ken has been affiliated with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Flint and Genesee County since the 1980s. He has served as the agency’s Regional Pan-Hellenic Coordinator and has been a Big Brother in the program both in the 1980s and today. Ken has seen how the organization has continued to provide opportunities for kids to develop a mutually beneficial one-on-none mentor relationship that often lasts a lifetime. He has seen how the positive relationship and success the organization has achieved has created a level of trust and hope with the youth in the community. He said that the “proven positive results that the mentor relationships have on the Littles speak for itself.”

Ken joined the Ambassadors because “I believe in the organization’s purpose. It’s not only tremendously needed but also equally rewarding for both the Big and Little. I hope to support the various programs where needed and encourage other potential mentors to become Bigs. It’s not that difficult, but very impactful.”

Welcome, Ken!

Meet the Ambassador Monday!
-
Ambassador, Patty Woodside is a student at the University of Michigan - Flint, majoring in social work. About a year ago, she was introduced to Big Brothers Big Sisters through the campus and was so eager to become a volunteer, she applied on the spot! Patty is not only an Ambassador for the organization, but she is also a volunteer. She believes the agency has created a positive impact by creating an avenue by which children can become more engaged within their community and with their neighbors. At her home in Davison, MI, Patty has been enjoying binge watching the Outlander Starz series with her Yorkshire Terrier, while enjoying the beautiful views of Scotland it represents. She believes this is the best way to travel during the COVID-19 season!
-
“I volunteered to be an Ambassador because the opportunities to engage young people are important. My hope is to show others their value at any age is worth so much to a child.”

Big Brothers Big Sisters would like to thank Genesee Intermediate School District (GISD) for providing care packages for Littles enrolled in our program in their 3rd Annual #GISDDayofGiving on September 11, 2020.

Sui-Lin, Barbara, Donna and Terese filled the packages with the child's favorite treats, a book for the match to read together and a gift card to purchase a meal that they can cook "virtually" with their Big.

Thank you #GISDDayofGiving for brightening the day of so many of our LIttles! 🥰💚
