Partner Spotlight: BANK OF AMERICA




Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit has been awarded a $25,000 grant from Bank of America to support career-focused mentoring. The Career Buddies program pairs teens with adults, with a focus on helping teens envision, plan for, and realize success after high school. Whether the teen intends to go to college or trade school, or enter the workforce, the mentor helps to empower the teen through guidance, friendship, and encouragement. Meetings take place on-site at the local school during the school day.


During the 2021-22 school year, BBBSMD served twenty students at Madison Heights Public Schools in the Career Buddies mentoring program. Students attended monthly one-hour sessions centered on soft skills, employability, professionalism, networking, relationship-building, goal setting. and money management. The program culminated with a series of mock interviews conducted by Bank of America volunteers, where students put their skills into action!



The grant is part of Bank of America's philanthropic giving efforts in local communities. Awardees were selected for their commitment to Economic Mobility addressing basic needs, workforce development, and community development.
