Malissa and Calie


Malissa volunteers as a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters Greater Pittsburgh.  She is matched with her mentee Calie through BBBS's community-based programming.  “My matches have always been a priority in my life. I’ve also been very fortunate to have great relationships with my Littles and their families."

As a mentor, Malissa feels that she is constantly learning and was surprised by how reciprocal the relationships are: “You end up growing so much together and I am continually humbled when I recognize things in myself that I know have been directly influenced by Calie.”
