Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana
For 40 years now, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana has been connecting “Littles” and “Bigs” – children and teens who need a positive adult role model and mentor, and the adults who volunteer to fill that need. The children who participate are 52% less likely to skip school, 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs; they generally do better academically and get along better with their families. Many adult participants say they have learned and grown as much from the relationship as their Little Brother or Sister. This Thursday we’ll learn more about BBBS Kentuckiana and how the program works, and visit with some Bigs and Littles to hear their stories. This show is from our archives, so we won’t be taking calls today.
