BBBS of Greater Pittsburgh is proud to announce it has been recognized by the Big Brothers Big Sisters Nationwide Leadership Council with the 2016 Big Brothers Big Sisters of America Quality Award. The Pittsburgh agency is in its 52nd year of serving its community’s children.

“I am so proud of our board and staff for making quality programming a priority for our local children,” said Jan Glick, president and CEO of BBBSPGH. “Their hard work equates to more mentorship in Pittsburgh and a brighter future for area youth.”

In the past year, BBBSPGH has served 1,483 children by connecting them with supportive adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and supporting those mentoring relationships. The Quality Award recognizes the agency for its excellent community programming. Recognized for its quality community programming, the agency expanded further by launching their campus-based program in partnership with University of Pittsburgh’s Pittserves and the Rankin Christian Center. The agency is focused on fundraising efforts that support existing matches and will assist over 250 children currently on the waitlist in being matched.

“Each match between a Big and Little takes care and attention, and this Quality Award shows that Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh has done an outstanding job serving children in its community,” said Pam Iorio, president and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.

Out of more than 300 Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies, BBBS of Greater Pittsburgh was one of 36 recognized as Quality Award Winners at the 2017 Big Brothers Big Sisters National Conference in San Diego, California on June 27.
