Linda Gorter oversees all of the programs offered by the organization. This includes the classic Community Mentoring Program and the School Mentoring Program. She became the agency's Executive Director in 2017 and has been spearheading its overall operations ever since.

 

She worked for over twenty years with the YMCA in Harrisburg and York, earned her undergraduate degree from the State University of Oswego, and obtained her Master degree in Business from Eastern University. She is extremely involved in the local community, serving as an active member of the Rotary Club of York-East, a Board member of The York Area Housing Group, and is a Volunteer Companion at Olivia’s House, A Grief and Loss Center for Children.

 

She has two children, a son, who is an attorney for PENNVEST in Harrisburg, and a daughter, who is a Physical Therapist at the Veteran’s Administration Hospital in Philadelphia.  Her love and compassion extend beyond her family and those served by Big Brothers Big Sisters to her three rescue cats.

Mark leads the fundraising efforts that make our programs possible and informs the public about our mission, activities and successes. He holds a degree in political science and philosophy from Millersville University. Prior to joining the staff at BBBS, he worked extensively in customer service/sales.

Mark spent time as an Organizing Fellow with a presidential campaign and as a student in a PhD program before realizing that he wanted to work somewhere that directly helps the local community.  He’s grateful for the opportunity to work for an organization that helps so many children in our community.

Mark lives in York Township with his wife, Angela, a school psychologist. Someone who loves to cook, Mark’s recent obsession is BBQ. He also plays various musical instruments and is an avid reader and film buff.
