Fostering Future Leaders

The Wyandotte County Boys and Girls Club of Greater Kansas City is like a second home for Brittany Robinson, Credit Analyst and Community Ambassador in the TFS Kansas City Dealer Sales and Service Office (DSSO).

As part of TFS’ national “Great Futures” partnership with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Brittany volunteers every Thursday organizing community events and service projects, plus teaches financial education and arranges summer college tours. She spearheads the holiday and back-to-school events that ensure the kids — approximately 80 percent of whom come from foster care backgrounds — receive holiday gifts, school supplies and backpacks. And, she is the force behind Career Launch, a program designed to motivate teenagers to start planning for life after high school.

Brittany became a club member in middle school upon the suggestion of her best friend. At age 13, she became a junior staffer, and through her involvement with the club’s Keystone Leadership program, at 14, she attended conferences in Southern California and Atlanta, networking with 2,500 other Boys and Girls Club leaders from across the country.

During her six years working at the club, a leader from the TFS Kansas City DSSO visited and informed her about internship opportunities at TFS. Brittany earned an internship as a contract analyst in 2012 and was eventually hired full-time as a credit analyst.

She lights up at the thought that she is a role model for the kids, especially the older teens who remember her as a club employee and even a club member.

“The Boys and Girls Club changes lives and provides opportunities for kids who may otherwise not get them. I’m grateful that Toyota sees a bright future in all of these kids.”
