MISSION: Our mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth. Our vision is that all children reach their full potential.

SERVING OUR COMMUNITY: The agency serves children in 13 counties in Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky & SE Indiana. Our goal is to clear the path to a child’s biggest possible future by matching them with a caring adult mentor. Bigs help Littles by Igniting, Empowering and Defending their potential.

We partner with parents/guardians, volunteers and others in the community and hold ourselves accountable for each child we serve achieving:

  • Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
  • Avoidance of risky behaviors

What does Success look like?
Of the 1,025 children served in 2020:
100% are in school
are substance-abuse free
are not involved with the juvenile courts
developed critical life skills, including academic progress
reported improved self-esteem

Be a Big in the Community-Based program, and meet your Little a few times a month on a day and time that is convenient for the two of you. Explore parks and neighborhoods, play sports, attend events, talk about school and life.

  • Be a Site-Based Big and meet your Little once a week at school or another partner site. Play games, do crafts or homework, talk, laugh and get to know each other.
