Defending the Potential of Union County's Youth
Big Brothers Big Sisters helps Union County children ages 5-14 develop the foundational character strengths they need to reach their own potential. Each relationship is created by our professional staff and fostered by our program staff that monitors, supports, and nurtures each mentor-mentee relationship.
Mentors and youth participate in a variety of activities designed to enrich their lives and develop trust over time. The average length of a mentoring relationship is more than three years, and many of these relationships last a lifetime! Littles in our programs report an increase in self-esteem, are more confident in academics and are less likely to use drugs or alcohol.

We recruit, screen, match and support mentoring relationships that support children in our community when they need it most. If your child could benefit, please contact us!
The Big Brothers Big Sisters Program of Union County collaborates with other agencies to strengthen the support we provide to our Littles and their families. We coordinate supportive services for youth and families in our program with Community Action, The Hope Center, IMPACT60, Juvenile Court, Maryhaven, Marysville Schools, North Union Schools, Union County Board of Disabilities, and Union County Job and Family Services.
We believe collaboration is an important part of living and working in Union County. This tight knit community makes relationships with other agencies a key to expanding and strengthening our services. In working directly with other agencies, we are better able to provide for the specific needs of the child.
