Calling All Current, Past and Potential
Big Brothers and Sisters
There are hundreds of youth (aka Littles) facing adversity across Kansas waiting to be matched with a volunteer mentor (aka Bigs). However, we need more volunteers and are asking for your help.
Do you know anyone who is passionate about helping others? Someone who sees the best in others. Someone who can believe a youth’s potential to be truly great.
It could be a friend, family member, neighbor, co-worker – anybody who you think would make a great Big. Nominate them today by clicking the button on the top of this page.
How it Works
Once a current or past Big Brother or Sister refers a potential Big and that person successfully goes through the enrollment process to get matched with their Little, the current or past Big (who nominated a potential Big) will be entered into a drawing for monthly and quarterly prizes (Sedgwick County only)!
For residents in Butler, Reno, Harvey, Cowley or Sumner Counties: ANYONE can refer a potential Big Brother or Sister (you do not have to be a current or past Big). As a token of our appreciation for your Big referral, we will award you with a $25 gift card to a local business if your referral becomes a Big!

Every child deserves to see their full potential realized. Sometimes it just takes a Big — an adult mentor like you or me — to help show them who they are capable of becoming. As a Big myself, I know you’d be a great Big, too. All it takes is a couple of hours a month, join me! To learn more about becoming a Big with Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters, fill out an inquiry form online at kansasbigs.org/be-a-big or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep in mind that there is no pressure or obligation to learn more.
Hear What Our Current Bigs Have to Say
"Alfredo and I have had so much fun throughout our match experience and I hope it continues. The only regret I have is waiting too long to take the challenge and would encourage anyone to step up and become a Big."
"Being Grace's Big Sister has been a great experience. I've gotten to watch her grow from a very silly and active 5-year-old to a maturing and smart 12-year-old."
