ABOUT OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Yolanda R. Williams begins as executive director with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Iowa on March 13, 2019. She has been a veteran staff member with the Partnership 4 Kids mentoring organization in Omaha, NE. She also served on the Omaha Public Schools board of education, education chair for Omaha NAACP, event facilitator for Community in Schools and Family First: A Call to Action, and worked with the Love’s Jazz and Arts Center and Nebraska Arts Council, along with other public service endeavors.

Yolanda holds a BA in arts management with minors in art history and studio arts, and is a proud mother of three. “Ms. Yo” as she is affectionately called, states “Advocating for youth has been my passion as far back as I can remember. I am honored for the opportunity to lead Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Iowa into a new era of collaboration with staff, stakeholders and the community at large. Together our journey will continue to make an impact; one youth, one match and one day at a time.”
