ABOUT

Inspiring potential through one-to one mentorship

We believe all youth have potential and deserve the opportunity to achieve success in life.

By matching youth facing adversity with a caring adult mentor in a one-to-one mentoring relationship, our Bigs help inspire greater self confidence, better academic performance, and dreams for the future that will change their life for the better, forever. 

 

 
Mission
To create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

Vision
That all Kansas youth earn a living wage by age 25.

Our Littles

We serve Kansas youth ages 5 to 25 who are facing a variety of challenges related to self-confidence, friendships, school, or family situations.

Because we recognize entering adulthood is a pivotal time in our Little’s lives, we offer the opportunity to remain matched through age 25 for guidance and support navigating life as a young adult with the vision that they will earn a living wage by 25.
