Interns Support Underserved Communities through Big Brothers Big Sisters Video


d'Vinci Interactive and JPL summer interns partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region (BBBSCR) to create a pro-bono brand video to help the non-profit reach volunteers and supporters. Big Brothers Big Sisters is a non-profit organization dedicated to defending the potential and igniting the promise of youth through one-to-one mentorship programs and other community-based initiatives.

d'Vinci interns Abby Fleishauer (Bloomsburg University), Alhaji Kabba (Hagerstown Community College), and Maggie Delano (Penn State University) and JPL intern Ghalia Ghuniem (Boston University), produced a video using compelling stories from mentors and children to promote the various opportunities that BBBSCR provides.

"Through this experience, our kids and volunteers had the opportunity to share the difference their relationships have had on one another. Their stories and our programs were featured to show there are numerous ways to engage in our mission beyond mentoring, and to inspire the community to invest in our mission. The expertise of JPL and d'Vinci and the commitment of the interns is a generous gift that will keep on giving for a long time to come," said Amy Rote, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region President & CEO.

The video will be used by Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region to articulate their story to prospective mentors, corporate partners, and sponsors.

d'Vinci and JPL donate communications have donated expertise to area non-profits through its intern program for more than 20 years. To learn more about Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region, visit their website or any of their social channels.
