About Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah

For more than 40 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah has embraced the belief that every child possesses the potential to succeed in life. As part of one of the largest mentoring networks in the nation, supported by generous donors and volunteers, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah facilitates purposeful connections between adult volunteers (referred to as “Bigs”) and children (known as “Littles”) aged 6 to 18, spanning across the state.

Spending Time Together 

When Bigs and Littles are Matched together, we ask Bigs and Littles in Community-Based programs to meet at least twice monthly. The purpose of these activities is to help Bigs and Littles spend quality time together. Through spending time together, Littles can connect with their Big, fostering a sense of belonging. Matches often participate in low to no-cost activities such as going to a park, baking, or arts and crafts. Each activity is approved by the Little and their parent/guardian. Matches are also given the opportunity to meet together at BBBSU events, including the Summer picnic. The picnic is a special opportunity to include the Little’s family members in spending time with the Little’s Big. 

Our picnic could not be possible without our sponsors’ generous support and donations, including Lake City Photo Booth. We look forward to a fun and memorable Summer picnic!
