We asked our Bigs the top 3 reasons they choose to be a mentor. They said:
1️⃣ To make a difference
2️⃣ To stay connected to their community
3️⃣ To be the mentor they had or did not have growing up

Now is the perfect time to be a part of something larger than yourself by connecting with a youth in your community πŸ‘‰ kansasbigs.org

Be a Big-Change a Life

Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters (KSBBBS) serving Shawnee County matches children facing adversity with caring, adult mentors. We believe that all children - regardless of race, socioeconomic status, or family background - can achieve success in life, especially with the guidance and support of a caring adult mentor. These one-to-one professionally-supported friendships last a minimum of one year. However, the effects of these friendships last a lifetime.
