Allen & Gerritsen, in partnership with the Big Sister Association of Greater Boston, has been named as one of The Boston Business Journal’s 2019 Corporate/Nonprofit “Partners of the Year”. As part of its annual Corporate Citizenship Awards Program, this award honors the businesses and nonprofits that have made an immediate and lasting impact in the region by working together.
Allen & Gerritsen has partnered with Big Sister since 2016, providing advertising services for the nonprofit organization, but most importantly through its Workplace Mentorship Program. This unique program, together with the Boston Public Schools, allows young girls to visit every other week during the school year A&G’s offices in the Seaport and be matched with a Big Sister in their place of work. While this program is aimed at providing young girls with positive role models, Allen & Gerritsen employees believe this relationship is mutually beneficial. A&G looks forward to this partnership flourishing for years to come.
