Since 1957, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass has provided professionally-supported mentoring relationships to countless children and their adult mentors.
Changing perspectives. Changing lives.
For more than 60 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. We make meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 13, in communities across Central Kentucky. We then help develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of our young people.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass’ mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
Our vision is for all children to achieve their potential.
By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers, and others in the community we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:
• Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
• Avoidance of risky behaviors
• Educational success
