ABOUT US

CHANGING PERSPECTIVES. CHANGING LIVES.

Since 1988, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Jefferson City has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is incredible potential. As part of the nation’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”).   We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.

MISSION

Provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

VISION

All children achieve success in life.

ACCOUNTABILITY

By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers, and others in the community we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:

Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships

Avoidance of risky behaviors

Educational success
