How Mentoring Impacts Kansas City

Kansas City is enjoying a well-deserved moment in the sun. People across America are realizing what Kansas Citians have known for a long time about our hometown. One of the unsung assets of our community is the compassion our residents have for others. This is illustrated through charitable giving, friendly neighborhoods, and, for our purposes today, Kansas City’s role as the mentoring capital of America.

6 Easy Ways to Help BBBSKC

If you are a follower of Big Brothers Big Sisters, you probably know that our two biggest needs are 1) Bigs and 2) Donations.

There’s no way of getting around the fact that in order to match more kids with mentors we need caring, adult volunteers that are willing to spend their time with a child in a life-changing friendship.  There’s currently 417 boys and girls in Kansas City that are waiting for a Big.

Making a Match: Finding the Right Fit Between a Big and Little

The right mentoring relationship can help youth to identify their strengths, boost their self-confidence, persevere through life’s challenges, and reach their full potential. I think I can speak on behalf of the program team and say that making a match is the highlight of the Case Manager’s role, after all, it’s what we’re here to do--to create life-changing friendships. As such, making the right match takes time and thoughtfulness. Case managers are trained not to make a match just for the sake of making a match, but rather to make a match that will endure.

Women on the Rise

Last week, a very cool thing happened at the BBBSKC office. A group of our Big Sister/Little Sister matches gathered to talk about goals and how to reach them. But the conversation was much more than that. We talked about real life, about struggles we all face and how hard it can be to know which path to success we want to go down. We talked about ways to frame your future and how not to get caught up in the drama that can arise. We talked about ways to get ahead in life and how to remain true to yourself on your path to success.
