ABOUT BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS OF THE BLUEGRASS
CHANGING PERSPECTIVES. CHANGING LIVES.
For more than 60 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. We make meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 13, in communities across Central Kentucky. We then help develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of our young people.

You’ll start by filling out our application form. Once your application is approved, you’ll be contacted to schedule an interview with one of our enrollment specialists. After the interview, our staff will perform reference checks, a background check, and will review your driving record. If you are approved to become a Big (congratulations!), our staff will begin searching for prospective Littles for you. We make matches based on location, common interests, and other measures that are important to you, the Littles, and their parents/guardians. This process can take anywhere from 30-60 days. Once a compatible match has been found, a staff member will contact you to tell you about the Little. With your approval, a Match Meeting will be set up so the two of you can meet!
