Mentorship ... It's a BIG Deal!

For just a few hours of your time each month, you can give a child the simple, yet invaluable, gift of your friendship. Play a board game. Make fun crafts. Hang out at the park. Help them with their homework. Take them to a place they’ve never been...

Your options are unlimited, and so is your Little's potential!

The impact our Bigs make is evident.

By simply changing a Little's perspective about what the world can offer, you can literally start changing their lives. Studies have shown that our Littles are more confident in school, get along better with their families, are less likely to begin using drugs & alcohol, & so much more. In fact, 83% of former Littles said their Big instilled values & principles in them that have guided them through life. There are hundreds of children waiting for a Big just like you... Are you ready to make a BIG difference?

Man Up!

More than half of children in Central Kentucky waiting for a Big are boys, but only 3 out of every 10 volunteer inquiries come from men. And disproportionate to our male volunteer population, the majority of children we serve and those waiting to be matched are African-American and Hispanic boys.

Their parents seek our support, knowing a Big Brother can recognize their child's potential and model positive choices that put him on the path for success in and out of school. Research shows that having the positive influence of a Big Brother makes a real difference in the life of a child, so what are you waiting for? Join the Brotherhood!
