We look forward to working with BARKER’s team to implement strategic digital campaigns that will amplify our message and compel New Yorkers to step up and serve as positive role models to our city’s children.”

“Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC are profound catalysts for change,” said John Barker, Founder and Chief Idea Officer at BARKER.
