As part of Mayor Jane Castor’s Mentoring Milestones, she’s partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters on their School-to-Work program. School-to-Work will consist of approximately 20 city employees who have been matched with Hillsborough High School 11th graders. This program is part of a two- year commitment focused on ‘bigs’ mentoring ‘littles’ while highlighting how rewarding their careers in municipal service have been and showcasing what a career in public service could mean for their ‘little’s’ future.

“As someone who has spent almost my entire life as a ‘big’ in public service, I could not be more excited for this program,” said Mayor Jane Castor. “Mentoring is truly near and dear to my heart. I always say, you get out ten times more than you give. I look forward to seeing  the smiles on the ‘bigs’ and ‘littles’ faces as they interact for the first time. This will truly be a life changing experience.”
