Comcast employees who sign up to mentor local school children through Big Brothers Big Sisters can use the company’s facilities to meet with their “Littles” twice a month.
Comcast’s Philadelphia branch began participating in Big Brothers Big Sisters’ “Beyond School Walls” program in 2008. The workplace mentoring program is part of the cable TV company’s $10 million national commitment to support the nonprofit. The initiative pays for public-service announcements, program sponsorships, national and local board member support anddevelopment and training opportunities for Big Brothers Big Sisters staff members.
The program is expanding. Comcast now sponsors “Beyond School Walls” programs in nine cities nationwide.
