Together, we are Defenders of Potential.

We need your help.

In an effort to spread the word about our mission and to impact the lives of even more children, every October we recruit an Army of Defenders for the 10 for $10 campaign. For 10 days, Defenders from across the region join forces through an online peer-to-peer fundraising event to spread the word about Big Brothers Big Sisters and attempt to raise 10, $10 donations each. Defenders even get the opportunity to earn swag and win cool prizes along the way. The request may be small, but with our powers combined, the outcome is BIG. In 2018, the first year of the campaign, Defenders raised a total of $16,000!

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass has been serving the youth of Central Kentucky since 1957. We’ve served thousands of kids over the last six decades, but there are many more who are still waiting for someone to stand in their corner - and over 200 who are waiting for a Big right here in Central Kentucky.

We don’t create potential… we inspire it; we empower it; we ignite it – and we couldn’t do it without YOU. We are not saviors, we are allies – each and every one of us. Together, we clear a path to their biggest possible futures. Together, we are Defenders of Potential.

Learn how you can defend a child's potential.

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.
