During the year 2022, members of Big Brothers Big Sisters National Youth Mentoring Advisory Council – or NYMAC – continued to meet each month to create innovative ways to engage with our local communities, the National Board, and one another. It was a year of healing and growth for us all. With a transition back to in-person community activities, NYMAC members demonstrated a steadfast resolve for positive change, which led to much progress.
NYMAC members have grown our online presence significantly in the past year. We have been featured on North America’s largest broadcasting radio (Zoomer Radio), created several podcast episodes, and launched an Instagram page to connect with the community (@bbbsc_nymac). The youth council also continued sharing blog posts, mainly covering the importance of mentorship and its positive impact on both mentors and mentees.
