About Us

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands helps children realize their potential and build their futures. We nurture children and strengthen communities. We couldn't do any of it without you.

Changing perspectives. Changing lives.

For more than 50 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the
ability to succeed and thrive in life. As a donor and volunteer supported organization, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful,
monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 7 through 18, throughout the Omaha/Council
Bluffs metro area. We develop positive friendships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
