Young Professionals can make a difference...

The Young Professional Outreach (or YPO) Board is a group of professionals in their 20's and 30's who have all come together to support the efforts of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh. Their mission: to attract and recruit local young professionals to become donors, volunteers, and advocates through strategic outreach and networking events. Many of them have been or currently are Bigs themselves but all feel passionately about their mission as a YPO Board member.

"Each member of the YPO board has experienced first-hand the positive impact that Bigs and Littles have on each other's lives," says YPO Board President, Alyssa DiLoreto. "There are so many children waiting for that Big/Little relationship and we are committed to supporting BBBS through fundraising. Becoming Match Makers was an easy decision because if our contributions can support or create even one match, then we've made a difference in a child's life."
