BCF Participates in Work Ready Program

August 1, 2022

A recent article in the Kitsap Sun highlighted a new Work Ready Program created this year by Bainbridge Youth Services and the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce. BCF is proud to have hired Sai Pranati Prakash, a rising senior at Bainbridge High School, as a summer employee through this program. Sai is helping design a communications strategy in partnership with BCF staff, among other tasks.
When asked why she wanted to work with us, Sai said "I wanted to work with BCF to learn more about the active nonprofit world around me. I've always been passionate about social justice and the work BCF does is so impactful to my community. Working at BCF is a way for me to give back."
Prior to working with BCF, Sai was working to create a student-led magazine centered around themes of diversity, equality, social justice and climate change. The publication, called Bloom Magazine, will be launched at Moonlight Market on August 5 from 5-9PM. You will be able to grab a copy at most local businesses or at Bainbridge Public Library, and you can follow them on Instagram at @bloommmagazine.
UPDATE: You can now read Sai's magazine here!
