Our Programs

So many ways to get started

Something for everyoneChildren come from all walks of life. So, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution to making an impact on them.

Special Programs

In addition to our traditional mentoring program, BBBS-KC has developed several special initiatives that help us target the children who need our program the most. We believe in being intentional in who we serve and how we match Bigs with Littles. Some of the factors we pay special attention to in addition to children from one parent families are children who qualify for free or reduced lunch, children who live in a neighborhood affected by crime, children who miss school frequently, and important risk factors.
