Meet the Team: Brittany Williamson

We want to introduce you to the incredible women that make up our SBSK team. Our Site Coordinators are the heart behind what we do and we wouldn’t be able to encourage hearts and inspire minds without them leading the way.

This week, we’re introducing you to Brittany Williamson, our Site Coordinator at Lee Lewis Campbell Elementary! Without further adieu, here’s Brittany to tell you her story!

I was born in Houma, Louisiana, but I mainly grew up in Oklahoma - since we were a military family, we moved around quite a bit! I graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma with a degree in Criminal Justice. My husband’s promotion brought us to Austin in March 2017! Austin has so much to offer and I’m excited to explore it!

Prior to Side by Side Kids, I worked for a total of five years in Juvenile Corrections as a Probation Officer and Probation Supervisor. Side by Side Kids gained my attention because I had always wanted to work in the non-profit sector and I absolutely love kids - once I found out it was faith-based, that just sealed the deal!

Side by Side Kids is unique in the fact that it is a structured afterschool program that focuses on growing students in many different ways. We want students to achieve academic success, build character, know who God is and to have fun in a safe environment!

I really enjoy working with our awesome staff and my energetic kids at Campbell. I truly feel like that campus was meant for me! One of my favorite moments so far is when one of my little kindergartners grabbed my leg and cried because his mom came to pick him but he wasn’t ready to leave Side by Side Kids for the day!

There is so much to look forward to for the rest of the year, but I am most excited about growing and building lasting relationships with my students, their families, and the administration at Campbell Elementary!

Will you join Brittany in serving our Side by Side Kids students with a Back to School donation today? We count on contributions like yours to continue running a high quality program and stay consistent in the lives of our kids. By giving to this ministry, you are making an eternal impact.
