Changing lives for the better, forever.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass helps children realize their potential and build their futures. We nurture children and strengthen communities. And we couldn't do any of it without you. 

Hundreds of children in Central Kentucky are waiting for a caring adult role model.

When children and teens have the influence of a caring adult, they are more likely to avoid risky behaviors and to focus on academics. Today's youth face a variety of challenges, and being matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister can help them navigate these challenges and reach their potential.

Learn how you can help make a difference.

At Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass, young males of color make up more than half of our waiting list, many of whom have been waiting for a Big Brother for more than two years. They come to us with the hopes of finding a mentor who will inspire them to reach beyond their adversity.
