The School to Work Program Proves to Be a Success for Palm Beach County Youth!

The Jim Moran Foundation has funded Big Brothers Big Sisters of Palm Beach County’s School to Work Program since its inception in 2017. During that time, hundreds of local youth had success while in and after graduating from the program, with some sharing the impact the School to Work program had on their life. Caesar stated that his mentor “cared about his well-being” and that his mentor was a “great fit” and “it meant a lot” to Ceasar. While Christele stated that she “made so many connections” while in the program. Still another youth, Nathea, stated that the program “was beneficial because from her experience she did not learn about careers in school” and “it was a great way to prepare for the future.”

This year’s funding from The Jim Moran Foundation will continue to enrich the lives of youth who will learn about critical pathways to success after high school. Following the legacy of its founder, The Foundation’s funding for Big Brothers Big Sisters demonstrates its ongoing commitment to education and encouraging youth to reach their greatest potential.
