Big Brothers Big Sisters: Douglas County

Life can sometimes pose difficulties and challenges for our youth. Although sometimes hard, we need to understand that it takes a village of people to be able to support our kids through their growing pains and to be able to help them reach their full potential in education, life, and career. 

At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we believe through one-to-one mentorship, kids can unlock their full potential and develop it alongside learning life skills and enjoying new experiences through the helpful hand of a “Big.” From a simple walk in the park to going to volunteer at a local nonprofit, our matches meet up in the community and build a relationship with each other through activities and time outside of the home. 

We enroll kids ages 5-17. When you register your child, one of our Match Support Specialists will contact you to discuss the program and answer any questions you may have. They will also conduct an interview with you and your kid to ensure we can get the most info about them to match them through our Best-Fit-Match method. This process ensures our matches start with some common ground to have the most success in creating a relationship with each other.

Ultimately, through mentorship, our goal is to ensure that future generations can be equipped with the most tools to thrive in our community and be the best person they can be!
