Big Brothers Big Sisters of Grand Island targets the children who need us most, including those living in single parent homes, growing up in poverty and coping with parental incarceration. Starting something begins with finding a great match between a Big and Little. Making these matches and performing all background work involved with them is possible because of donations from people like you. It's also why we're able to offer such a variety of programs that pair children, ages 6 through 18, with role models in one-to-one relationships.
Our donor-funded programs include our Community-Based and School-Based Mentoring.
And no matter the type of program - once a child enters a program, there's no limit to where he or she can go.
Something for everyone
Children come from all walks of life. So, there isn't a one-size-fits-all solution to making an impact on them.
