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
