Together we are
DEFENDERS OF POTENTIAL
Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central Indiana seeks to ignite the power and promise of youth throughout our communities. We operate in communities all across the South Central Indiana area. Our mentors work with children in the community, in their schools, at after-school clubs, and many places in between. Our unique brand of one-to-one mentoring has a Big impact all over the nation.
Adult “Bigs”, age 18 or older, are matched with Littles in a one-to-one mentoring relationship and spend time together doing activities in their community. Through friendship, Bigs experience the joy of helping children discover a world of opportunities.

Adult Bigs, age 18 or older, provide Littles between grades K-12 with one-to-one time and attention with activities or education in local schools during the child’s lunch break or enrichment hour.
bigs with badges
We kicked off our Bigs In Badges (BIB) program in the start of 2020. Our BIB program includes police, firefighters, EMTs, Conservation Officers, and more! Bigs in Badges typically spend an hour or so a week with a child during lunch or in their enrichment hour hanging out, doing fun activities, and enjoying the time together. This program is critical to bridging gaps in our community.
