Meet the Team: Brittney Alston

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 Brittney Alston, our Site Coordinator at J.J. Pickle Elementary! Here's Britney to tell you more about her story!

I grew up in California, attended college in Alaska and relocated to Texas from there. I’ve lived in Austin for just over 2 years now! I wanted to work somewhere where my faith could play a central role in what I do and was so excited when I came across Side by Side Kids because serving God is at the heart of this organization.

One of my favorite parts is getting to know every single kid that joins our program! There are so many colorful, sweet, and silly personalities. I’ve enjoyed seeing their enthusiasm for learning more about God and seeing the bond they form with their crew leaders.

I think ours is a unique organization because it is rooted in prayer. It’s so powerful that all our staff comes together on a weekly basis to pray for each other and our organization. We trust God and lift Him up in all that we do, and I’m so encouraged by that.

I’m excited for the rest of the year - especially the holidays! I have some really fun events planned for my kids at Pickle and my hope is that they make a lot of fun and meaningful memories here.

Will you join Brittney in serving our Side by Side Kids students with a gift 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!
