Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cumberland & Salem Counties (BBBS) is proud to announce Alicia Fearon as the organization’s newest Program Manager. In her new role, Alicia will manage High School Mentoring programs throughout Cumberland County.
Alicia, a first-generation college graduate, earned a bachelor’s degree from Eastern Michigan University, majoring in Social Work. While attending Eastern Michigan, Alicia was an intern with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washtenaw County.
“Though being born and raised in Michigan, I am beyond excited to join the Big Brothers Big Sisters team here in New Jersey,” said Fearon. “As a youth from a low-income single-parent family, mentorship played a critical role in my development and enabled me to succeed, not only by being the first generation in my family to earn a college degree but to become a new member of the Cumberland and Salem community, enabling me to make an impact and share the gift of mentorship.”
“We are so pleased to welcome Alicia,” said BBBS president and CEO Donna Bennett. “Mentorship has played a critical role in her life and there is no better way to ignite potential in our youth than to have a role model, who can directly speak to the impact mentorship played in their success. Alicia’s excitement and enthusiasm have already been felt throughout our organization and we know that she will make a long-standing impact here in our community. ”
