25 Women Changing the World

By |February 14th, 2019|

BBBSA President and CEO Pam Iorio Honored by People Magazine as one of 25 Women Changing the World in 2018

People Magazine published its annual list of “25 Women Changing the World,” on November 2, and the list includes our President and CEO, Pam Iorio. While the headline may be “25 Women Changing the World,” we see the story as how Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies, our Bigs, and our partners are working together to change their communities.

We are celebrating this recognition in a national publication and taking a moment to reflect on the impact being made in the lives of young people, their families, and our Bigs. In the last 10 years, nearly 2 million youth have been served by Big Brothers Big Sisters. In all 50 states, Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies match youth with Bigs who help them increase their self-esteem, improve their grades, strengthen their social skills, and work toward their biggest possible futures.

In the interview with People Magazine, Pam said that she’s inspired by the impact that Bigs have in helping Littles realize their full potential. “It’s very emotional for me to meet a Big and a Little and to hear them talk about their relationship. Just recently one said to me that their Big Brother was the first person in his life who had high expectations for him. That’s the sort of thing that I hear all the time.”

Let’s Start Coding

By |February 13th, 2019|

We have partnered with Code Ladder to provide free coding classes to a limited number of our STEM scholars.  Students will gain a more in-depth understanding of computer science concepts, collaborate with other students to solve complex problems, and at the end of this course, students can create interactive stories and games they can share with anyone.
Coding is a basic literacy in the digital age, and it is important for kids to understand and be able to work with and understand the technology around them. Having children learn coding at a young age prepares them for the future. Coding helps children with communication, creativity, math, writing, and confidence.
Here are five reasons why coding is important for young minds. 
1) Coding is another language.
2) Coding fosters creativity.
3) Coding helps children with Math skills.
4)  Coding improves writing academic performance.
5) Coding helps children become confident problem solvers.
