Together, We are Defenders of Potential

 

We are not a place. We are a relationship.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is the oldest, largest, and most successful mentoring organization in the U.S. We create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth. And we can't do it without you.

Every day, caring students and adults from across Butler County step up to mentor a child, and the impact is life-changing - for both the mentors and the kids.

BBBS of Butler County recognizes and celebrates Pride Month

For more than a century, Big Brothers Big Sisters has provided one-to-one mentoring relationships for young people – especially those facing the most challenges – empowering them on a path to a bright future with a mentor whose impact can last a lifetime. BBBS was founded on the premise of creating innovation and solutions from some of the very challenges prevalent across our communities. Throughout our history, we have remained committed to seeing children as whole people, no matter who they are or what they have been through. We are dedicated to serving all youth who need mentors, especially those who need us most. We know that LGBTQ+ youth face extremely high risks of bullying, depression, and homelessness, and often lack a support system. All young people – regardless of sexual orientation or gender identification – require and deserve safe and affirming environments and relationships to flourish. We believe that every young person deserves to be known, valued, and respected. Big Brothers Big Sisters strives to create an environment where young people feel they belong and celebrates all the intersections of a person that makes them unique. Passionate professionals and volunteers across the country stand united in our beliefs and values to be a more just, equitable, diverse, and inclusive organization. Through a lens of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI), that child safety priority includes our LGBTQ+ youth/Littles and our goal is to provide them safe and supportive mentoring relationships. BBBSA and the entire BBBS Network welcomes and serves ALL youth, families, staff, and board members, including LGBTQ+ individuals.

When children and teens have the influence of a caring adult, they are more likely to avoid risky behaviors and to focus on academics. Today's youth face a variety of challenges, and being matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister can help them navigate these challenges and reach their potential.
