Courtney Frost comes to BBBS with an extensive background in program development and management.

She concentrated her Master’s work in Social Psychology, making her a great asset to BBBS, an organization focused on the social needs of youth through its mentoring programs. Her quality of education and experience will provide Big Brothers Big Sisters with the opportunity to build upon its successful programs and encourage the growth of new ones.
