Big Brothers Big Sisters is moving its national headquarters from Dallas to Tampa.
The 110-year-old nonprofit with 331 affiliates across the country made the announcement Wednesday. The members and the CEOs who work with the nonprofit and sit on its board will regularly visit Tampa for meetings and conferences.
The organization’s president is no stranger to Tampa. Pam Iorio served as Mayor of the city from 2003-2011 and said she would continue to serve with the organization until 2019.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network. It will bring 20 new jobs to the area. The new headquarters will occupy 6,900 square feet of donated office space near downtown. Big Brothers Big Sisters will operate there rent-free for five years.
