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
99.7% are substance-abuse free
99.4% are not involved with the juvenile courts
99% developed critical life skills, including academic progress
98% reported improved self-esteem
