Could your little one use a Big?

It all starts with the right role models. And Big Brothers Big Sisters is the place to start a relationship with one. For over 100 years, due in large part to private donations, we’ve been able to recruit, screen, match and support mentoring relationships that have changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of young people across the country — one Little at a time.

You’ll feel the impact as much as your child.
A study for Big Brothers Big Sisters found that kids matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister:
  • are more confident
  • are more likely to steer clear of drugs and alcohol
  • do better in school
  • get along better with their family and friends
  • feel better about themselves1

Parents wanted.
You know what’s best for your child. So we’ll need your help from the start, providing information about your child’s strengths and needs, and ultimately approving the Big Brother or Big Sister match. But your role doesn’t end there.

Safety from the start.
Your child's safety is extremely important to us. Big Brothers Big Sisters conducts a thorough background check on every volunteer in our program, and every relationship is closely monitored and supported by a professionally trained match coordinator.

Is my child eligible?
Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central Kentucky serves children who live in Allen, Barren and Warren County who are between 6-12 years old (or in middle school for our School-Based Program). If a child is matched before their 13th birthday, they can remain in the program. All children and families must want to be involved in the program, and all children must be capable of having a one-to-one relationship with a volunteer. While our agency primarily serves single-parent and lower income families, it is not a requirement for every child. In addition, each match relationship is unique and based on the preferences of the parent, child and volunteer. This means that some children wait longer than others, but we do not match children based on a first-come, first-serve basis. We make every effort to ensure that the time your child waits to be matched with a volunteer is well worth it in the end.
