Big Brothers Big Sisters Kansas City serves children and teens living in one-parent or nontraditional homes. BBBSKC matches Littles in 2nd-11th grade with Bigs in a one-to-one, life-changing friendship. Bigs and Littles hang out 2-3 times a month for a few hours doing normal, everyday activities, like going to see a movie, playing games, going out to eat, or just hanging out!

Each match is supported by a dedicated match support specialist who is always there to provide resources and support specific to the Little’s age. With a Big in their life, children and teens in the BBBSKC program are empowered to ignite their potential as they grow in their self-esteem, earn better grades, and develop a lifelong friendship with their Big.
