Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washtenaw County and BBBS of Metro Detroit will soon merge to become a larger chapter in Michigan as Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Southeast Michigan.
With the partnership of the two affiliates, the organization hopes to increase the number of mentorship opportunities for adult volunteers and kids.
“The first priority for us is being able to serve more kids,” Jennifer Spitler, interim CEO of BBBS of Metro Detroit and executive director of BBBS of Washtenaw County, said. “Right now, there’s too many kids on our waitlist because we need more volunteers. We want to offer additional opportunities, programs for volunteers to engage in and for kids and families to enroll in.”
