While we’re unable to host Bowl for Kids’ Sake this year due to the pandemic, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be hosting a brand NEW event in its place: Introducing Scavenger Hunt for Kids’ Sake! This unique, hybrid event will have both in-person and virtual options to allow for safe, socially-distanced fun for all who are interested in participating! Additional event and fundraising details coming soon… In the meantime, mark your calendars for the weekend of June 4-6, 2021!

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.
