BBBSCA Partners with UAMS Pathways Academy
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arkansas (BBBSCA) is partnering with The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Pathways Academy to add mentorship to the curriculum for the program's students.
Under the partnership, BBBSCA is providing sessions during which Pathways students will learn the meaning of mentorship and how to identify mentors in their own lives. BBBSCA will also provide social and emotional learning opportunities through its new small group engagement and mentoring sessions. The sessions will run through the 2022-23 academic year.
BBBSCA is proud to bring our small-group mentoring services to UAMS’ Pathways Academy,” said Raymond Long, chief executive officer of the nonprofit organization. “We are excited to play a part in diversifying the health care workforce in Arkansas. This partnership aligns with my vision to show Central Arkansas that mentoring should be a foundational aspect of any youth development program. We look forward to connecting Pathways scholars with group mentoring sessions to reinforce the critical thinking, problem-solving and leadership skills they will gain by participating in this innovative program.”
