Please join Big Brothers Big Sisters in welcoming our new match support specialist, Shasta Savage. Shasta grew up in the Ithaca community and spent much of her youth attending Youth Bureau programs. After graduating from high school and reflecting on the community mentors who supported her, Shasta pursued a college degree focused on social justice, human rights, youth development and resilience.
Through the purposeful, compassionate, trauma-informed approach taken in all that she does, Shasta honors the values of dignity, equity and inclusion. She is currently certified as a yoga teacher who offers accessible yoga, mindfulness and self-care classes. In her free time, she enjoys exploring the outdoors, eating delicious food and petting dogs! She is excited to begin her journey with the Big Brother Big Sisters Community.
