Zenith Partners with Big Brothers Big Sisters
August 23, 2017 | By Peter J. Taylor
Partnering with organizations in which we share a similar mission is important to us. Recently, we announced a partnership between Zenith Education Group and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBSA). While Zenith and BBBSA may outwardly seem different, we have the same core value of working hard to make sure the next generation succeeds and share a belief in the importance of providing a support system to help individuals improve their lives.
Through this partnership, BBBSA will award 150 scholarships to students, piloting the scholarship program in five locations around the country: Columbus, Ohio; San Antonio, Texas; Laramie, Wyoming; Seattle, Washington; and Tampa, Florida. We will fund up to $600,000 in scholarships of $4,000-$6,000 to students in these regions. The scholarships, to be used for attendance at Altierus Career College or WyoTech Advanced Technical Training campuses, will be awarded by BBBSA over the next three years.
“We appreciate this partnership with Zenith, which will help provide viable education opportunities beyond high school for young men and women who have been affiliated with Big Brothers Big Sisters,” said Pam Iorio, president and CEO of BBBSA. “Together, we are expanding the possibilities for these young people as they explore career opportunities.”
We look forward to working together with BBBSA to achieve our shared mission of helping young adults realize their potential and build their futures by providing a path to a career and we can’t wait to see all of the BBBSA “Littles” that will benefit from this program.
