About Us


Last year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio served more than 6,200 children through our mentoring programs plus Camp Oty'Okwa, and an additional 823 through our affiliated agencies. Youth facing adversity are more likely to want a mentor in their life, but less likely to have a mentoring relationship. By building strong, one-to-one, professionally-supported mentoring relationships to serve as a foundation for positive impact and life skills learning, Big Brothers Big Sisters helps close the opportunity gap that exists for far too many kids in our community.


To provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.


All children achieve success in life.
