Ep. 119 – Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Big Bend Creating Bright Futures for High School Students Through Career Mentorship, Molly Lord, Executive Director

The Tallahassee-Leon County region is continuing to face an ongoing workforce crisis with an extreme talent shortage. Over the past two years, the Chamber has worked to streamline the talent pipeline, encouraging educators and employers to work together and place qualified candidates in high-paying jobs. Through local partnerships, we’re working towards that goal, and thanks to the latest efforts of Big Brothers Big Sisters, we’re one step closer.

On this week’s episode of the Tallahassee Business Podcast presented by The Health Network, Big Brothers Big Sisters Executive Director, Molly Lord joins us to introduce their Big Futures program. With the expansion of their mentorship services, volunteers will work one-on-one with high school students from Godby and Rickards High School to prepare them for life beyond high school.
