Mission

Create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

Profile

Community Based Matches-

 

The community based program matches an adult volunteer to a child, between the ages of 5-17. Together, they share in everyday activities and simple outings a few hours a month. The Big and Little may enjoy activities such as going to the park, going on a bike ride, attending community events or visiting area businesses. During these special outings, Bigs help cultivate relationships that provide their Little with skills to manage every day challenges. Through simple friendships, Bigs experience the joy of helping their Little discover a world of possibilities and opportunities. A friendship will be built that may change your life and a child's life forever.

Bigs in Blue -

Bigs in Blue connects youth with law enforcement mentors, building strong, trusting, and lasting relationships. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Salina partners with the Salina Police Department to create and support these relationships to help children develop into confident adults and help build stronger bonds between law enforcement and the families they serve.  

School Based -

Through school based mentoring, High school Bigs offer Little individualized time and attention on a consistent basis, with the venue being the child’s school rather than the community. Teachers identify those children who can most benefit from an additional caring high school student in their lives. Bigs and Littles meet regularly during the school year, typically each week. Whether they play board games or read the newspaper together, their relationship promotes a positive school experience for the child: good attendance, positive peer and adult relationships, a positive attitude, and academic enrichment.
