Gather some friends and family and join us in a "Superhero" bowling day!

WHAT IS BOWL FOR KIDS’ SAKE?  This is our agency’s most important fundraising event of the year.  It is not about bowling.  It’s not about bowling skill levels.  First and foremost, it is about raising money to support the one-to-one mentoring programs.  It costs $1,000 to take a child and volunteer through the enrollment and matching process, and provide match support for the first year.

Our organization serves the counties of Adams, Brown, Cass, Morgan and Schuyler. Feel free to look around and begin the process of putting some magic into the life of a child and yourself! Big Brothers Big Sisters is a youth-mentoring non-profit service organization that provides ongoing supportive services to children in need of a mentor. Volunteers are recruited from within the community and are fully-screened by our professional staff members. The interests, needs, and personalities of the children and volunteers are considered in making the best one-on-one (adult/child) match possible. After a match is created, extensive supervision and support are provided on an ongoing basis to ensure the success of a match.

To provided children facing adversity with strong and enduring professionally supported one to one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever!
