Exclusive: Think Big for Kids to expand to new metros in the U.S.

Think Big for Kids, a non-profit organization that helps underprivileged youth discover their untapped potential by providing opportunities for career exploration, mentorship and skills development, will expand into the Atlanta, Chicago and Dallas markets.

The organization was developed, in 2016, by tech entrepreneur, and former Tribridge CEO, Tony DiBenedetto – after working with teens at several Boys & Girls Clubs and observing a general lack of career awareness and preparation.

Think Big for Kids engages teens, ages 12-18, through three-pillar programming including career exploration, mentorship and job readiness and placement. Volunteers, mentors and partner companies in industries, and trades, from health care to technology, work with kids to offer awareness, preparation and opportunities for careers in high demand.

“We’re excited to share the growth of Think Big for Kids, and our entry into new markets. We

have already exceeded our goal of serving 2,000 teens, by 2022, and this is a great step towards reaching even more kids across the U.S.,” said DiBenedetto.
