Together, we are Defenders of Potential.

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.
