Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Washington announced today that they are moving offices from Black Lake Blvd to Heritage Court over the Thanksgiving holiday. The new office is located at 2424 Heritage Court SW, Suite 302, Olympia, WA 98502.
“We are excited for this change because of the additional space for our MySTEAM (Science, Technology, Arts, and Mathematics) lab” said Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Washington’s CEO, Jeff Engle. “This new space also gives us the opportunity to collaborate with our neighbors in the building like the Boys and Girls Club.”
“As a donor and Board Member,” Amy Evans said, “I am very excited about creating synergies with the Boys and Girls Club, one of our closest allies serving youth, to create economies of scale and reduce duplication of efforts. Plus, the STEAM lab is going to be RAD!”
Big Brothers Big Sisters has been in their current office space for about ten years but had the opportunity to expand and add some additional services for the youth and families that they serve. The new office will not be just used as a space for interviewing the youth, families, and potential mentors but will now be a gathering place where youth can explore STEAM opportunities. This new space will give Big Brothers Big Sisters the capacity to better serve the community as a whole.
Big Brothers Big Sisters will be fully functioning out of their new office by December 1, 2018. The community is more than welcome to stop by and say hello, especially once the STEAM lab is completed.
