Experian is deserving of this award because of their continued commitment to their community through the Big Brothers Big Sisters Beyond School Walls Program. The employees that participate in this program have volunteered 1,000+ hours of their time over the past 3 years to mentor a student from Estancia High School. Experian mentors have been matched with the same mentees since their freshman year of high school. These relationships have continued to grow and flourish as mentors and mentees have had an opportunity to explore college and career opportunities together. Our reporting shows that students who are participating in the Beyond School Walls Program are more self confident, driven, and focused on their academics because of the relationship with their mentor.
