After years of serving the community as Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central Kentucky, we will no longer be providing mentoring services as of February 20th, 2019.
The Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) model of one-to-one mentoring requires strict adherence to the Standards of Practice established for all BBBS affiliates. Over the years, the number and strength of those standards has increased, requiring additional staffing to ensure the program is delivered in a manner consistent with the BBBS model. This would increase the resources needed to support the program.
After considering the full picture of our community’s needs and capacity, we have concluded that our agency can no longer fully execute the BBBS model and that we need to move in another direction. Our local Board of Directors has decided to disaffiliate from Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBSA).
We are proud of our partnership with BBBSA over the years, and it has been an honor to serve hundreds of children by matching them in life-changing relationships with caring adult volunteers. Our top priority is the children and young people we serve, and we are dedicated to ensuring families have the information and the support they need as we discontinue our services.
