Our Impact

For the better, forever.

Our goal is to match Kansas youth facing adversity with caring, adult mentors in professionally supported one-to-one relationships to change their lives for the better, forever.

As a partner to parents and guardians of our youth (Littles), volunteers (Bigs), and communities, we are committed to seeing our Littles:

  • Achieve higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
  • Avoid risky behaviors
  • Reach educational success

Harris Interactive conducted an independent study of former Littles who are now adults and found:
  • 90% of alumni Littles said their mentor made them feel better about themselves
  • 46% report an annual household income over $75,000
  • 78% vote in elections
  • 76% learned right from wrong from their mentor
  • 50%+ said their mentor kept them from dropping out of high school

Big Brothers Big Sisters is very beneficial because Bigs become good role models to your kids. Anne has been a very good role model to Macy and I couldn’t ask for anything more.
