Big Brothers Big Sisters Of Johnson County

Who We Are

The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Johnson County is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

What We Do

We match adult volunteers with youth in one-to-one friendships and mentoring relationships. Volunteers can be matched with a child through one of these programs:

Community-Based Program Volunteer and child meet on a regular basis (about 6 hours each month) outside of school and work hours to spend one-to-one time together. How this time is spent is determined by each pair's personal interests, hobbies, or activities.

Secondary School-Based Program Volunteer and child meet at a weekly, scheduled time at the child's school, one-to-one. Volunteers and students, with supervision from program staff, use their friendship as a foundation to develop the child's academic skills.

Male role models are strongly needed. The wait time for a boy to meet his Big Brother is four times that of a girl to meet a Big Sister.

Spouses, partners, or friends can volunteer together to mentor a child through the community-based program. What a great way to include volunteering in the time you spend together!
