What We Do

The past year was tough on many kids. Right now, the 1-to-1 support of a mentor can help them move forward. Big Brothers Big Sisters is proud to launch The Big Recovery to help youth bounce back from the pandemic.

Our goal is to recruit over 204 new mentors by the end of the year. As kids enjoy their summer and head back to school this fall, it will take the goodness of our whole community to help them get back on track for success in the classroom and in life.

Become a mentor today! We offer two distinct programs that let you decide how you can make a positive impact on youth in our community in a way that best fits your lifestyle. Or help provide our safe, proven, accessible and free programs to kids and families across the Omaha metro with a donation.
