BCYMP appreciates the generous support of the Brookings community. Recently, one of our wonderful Mentors, Alison Tappan, was given the opportunity to take their BCYMP Mentees on a visit to Bobcat of Brookings.
Our mentor had reached out to Dave Jacobson, the manager, who was delighted to give the two a tour and showed the nine-year-old Mentee any piece of equipment he wanted. He event let him sit in some!
The best part of the experience was when the BCYMP Mentee got to drive a small excavator by himself and dig dirt out of a pile. Mr. Jacobson even gave him souvenirs to take home–a toy skid steer and a tee-shirt. This was a memorable experience that our Mentoring Pair are extremely grateful for!
The Brookings community and its business owners continue to amaze our organization by going above and beyond. Thank you!
