State Reps visit Framingham Site

Two weeks ago, two BBBSCM Staff members went to the Massachusetts State House to attend Youth Mentoring Day on Thursday, January 21.  In support of the efforts of Mass Mentoring Partnership and Mass Service Alliance to retain/expand the mentoring line item in the state budget, we met with representatives from our districts to let them know how mentoring was positively affecting the lives of their constituents and invited them to join us and view our programs firsthand.

Within a day, we were receiving follow-up calls from state reps to set up site visits and yesterday we were able to co-host a visit at the Boys and Girls Club on Pearl Street in Framingham so that Representative Pam Richardson and Representative Tom Sannicandro could meet our Littles in person!
