Big Brothers Big Sisters operates under the belief that inherent in every child is incredible potential. Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”)  in communities across the country as the nation’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.


Big Brothers Big Sisters Bartholomew County serves more than 1,400 children annually ages 8 - 18 in our community. We partner with parents/guardians, volunteers, schools, and the donors in our area to defend, ignite, and empower the potential of every kid we serve.  

The Big Brothers Big Sisters mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.


The Big Brothers Big Sisters vision is that all youth achieve their full potential. 

 

BECOME A BIG

We do not need to create potential, we just need to defend it. The kids in our community are waiting for mentors who will stand with them to defend, ignite, and empower their potential. Big Brothers Big Sisters exists to create positive change in our community by matching youth with Bigs to build powerful friendships.

BECOME A LITTLE 

Potential is a powerful thing but without proper nourishment it remains just that - untapped and unrealized. We provide quality mentoring relationships, and we work to ensure that our program is the best fit for you and your child through our eligibility and enrollment process.
