Tammy Young

Executive Director

I joined BBBS as the Executive Director in October of 2014.  I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from UW – Oshkosh and have over 25 years of work experience focusing on sales and marketing with an emphasis on volunteer engagement.

Many people have heard me say, “I love my job!” Big Brothers Big Sisters is a program I am proud to be affiliated with as it directly impacts the lives of local children.  I became a Big Sister myself a little over a year ago and it’s THE BEST thing I have ever done.  Will you make time to make a difference today?

Lisa Warntjes

Enrollment and Match Specialist

I am the Enrollment & Match Specialist for the School Based Program at BBBS. I have a degree in Psychology and enjoy working with the variety of people I meet every day. My job is to recruit and screen high school students, college students and adult volunteers that will mentor a child during school hours. I keep in regular contact with each school based match, the child’s parents and teachers. It is rewarding to see how much a mentor can help improve a child’s attitude toward school and their relationships with both peers and adults.
