All kids have potential, and by partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters and supporting our 1-to-1 mentoring model, you can help defend the potential of Utah’s kids. At Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah, we ignite the biggest possible future for youth facing opportunity gaps by providing them with mentoring relationships. Our programs support youth in our community, resulting in a positive outcome for everyone involved. Studies show mentored youth have better grades and school attendance, and feel more confident. Join us as a defender of potential today.
How We Help Kids
( & The Environment )
For more than 40 years, we’ve matched Bigs (volunteer mentors) with Littles (kids in the program) to ignite the potential of Utah kids. There are many ways you can support our mission and programs. In addition to volunteers donating their time, our youth and the environment benefit from used item donations and financial donations. All three types of contributions help kids get more out of their education, avoid risky behavior, aspire to be more, gain confidence, and, as a whole, build a safer, cleaner environment for us all.
Our one-to-one mentoring relationships ignite potential of the kids in our program (our Littles). Monthly, Bigs donate a few hours of their time for at least a year, and as their friendship grows, the Littles start to realize their potential. Learn more about how you can empower youth by becoming a Big.
When you donate to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah, you are doing more than making a charitable contribution — you are making an investment in a child’s future. Financial donations are the fastest and easiest way to make a difference immediately. Defend the potential of the youth in the community by making a an investment today.
Donate Used Clothes
Whether you’ve replaced clothing or small household items or need to free up some space, your used items can help fund our mission. By donating your used clothes, toys, and small household items, you help us support our mentoring programs and keep millions of pounds of cloth waste out of Utah landfills.
