After years of volunteerism, Kevin Clark is helping the community on a full-time basis.
Clark is the new community engagement branch manager for Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Elizabethtown office. Clark comes to BBBS with a background as a longtime volunteer with many organizations.
Clarkhas worked in marketing and became acquainted with the organization through his career. When the opportunity to work for Big Brothers Big Sisters became available, he knew it was a chance to do some good. He wanted to impact children in a positive way.
“You get to that point in your life when you begin wondering what have you actually done that made a difference,” he said.
Clarkis active in many other organizations. He’s a board member for the Kentucky Chiropractic Association. He’s involved with Cub Scout Pack 134, the Vine Grove Youth Soccer League and Elizabethtown Community and Technical College Business Administration. He also serves on the marketing committee for United Way of Central Kentucky.
Clark started volunteering as a way to meet people when he first moved to Hardin County. He said he was raised to serve others and his parents instilled in him a desire to be “a part of the community, not just live in it,” he said.
Clark’s priorities for the organization are to increase its presence in the community with more events and more publicity. He hopes those efforts draw new volunteers, too.
“They’re our lifeblood,” he said.
Fundraising is another focus. The cost to make and support a match of a child with a Big Brother or Sister is $1,200.
“Fundraising has to be a major cog in that wheel,” he said.
