Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters

Mission

Mission: to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. Vision: that all children achieve success in life.

Details

Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters (KSBBBS) matches children facing adversity with caring, adult mentors. We believe that all children - regardless of race, socioeconomic status, or family background - can achieve success in life, especially with the guidance and support of a caring adult mentor. These one-to-one professionally-supported friendships last a minimum of one year. However, the effects of these friendships last a lifetime. 

The children we serve are 5 to 17 years old and face various forms of adversity. With an active adult role model, they will have support and assistance to overcome these barriers and break destructive cycles. By becoming a Big, you are becoming a mentor and role model, which makes a huge impact on the lives of these youth. 

No program fees. 

We partner with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community and hold ourselves accountable for each youth in our program achieving:

  • Higher aspirations, greater confidence and better relationships
  • Avoidance of risky behaviors
  • Education Success
