Big Brothers Big Sisters Kansas City (BBBSKC) works to clear the path to a child's biggest possible future by matching them with a caring adult mentor in a one-to-one friendship. "Bigs" help "Littles" ignite, empower, and defend their potential by standing with them.

BBBSKC has more than 200 Littles waiting to be matched with a Big. Eastern Jackson County has the most urgent need, as there are 90 Littles on the waitlist.

  • Ian wants a Big who will go fishing and likes to go to the park.
  • Skyler loves riding bikes, fishing, camping, swimming, and playing basketball, and wants a Big who wants to do outdoor activities.
  • Eden loves watching movies and drawing but also loves being outside.
  • Isiah likes playing sports and wants to go pro one day. Isiah says, "I want a Big who can push me to be a better person and guide me as a young man."

Littles are in 2nd grade and beyond and want and need a Big in their lives. Bigs and Littles meet two or three times a month, taking part in everyday activities like going to the movies or grocery store, talking about day-to-day challenges and victories, and more. You don't have to be perfect to be a Big; you just need enthusiasm, curiosity, and the desire to get involved!

If you want to learn more about the steps needed to become a Big or know someone in your circle who would be interested, we encourage everyone to join us on November 2, 2022, at the THCF office for a 1-hour Bigs volunteer info session. There are no expectations, just an opportunity to learn more about what it takes to be a friend and mentor to a child in your community. To attend, RSVP to Joanne Smith by October 26, 2022, at 816.912.4183 or by email at smith@thcf.org.
