Dear Mentors & Friends

It’s been a wonderful spring as we received new funding from Volunteer Florida to serve additional youth in outlying counties. There is never a shortage of children in need of a positive role model in their life. If you’re not a mentor, and would like to be, please call our office for more information.

We’re just a few days away from Bowl for Kids’ Sake and encourage you to get involved! Every dollar raised helps us serve more kids in the big bend region and it’s a great day of fun! Many of our local corporate partners sponsor lanes and send their employees out for a fun day supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters. Some of our partners chose to donate their lane to our Bigs & Littles, who always seem to have a great time bowling. Find out more at

We hope to see you May 20 as we Bowl for Kids’ Sake!


Alva Striplin, CEO



During this time of year we are reaching out with a small but impactful way for you to help us match more children with caring mentors, simply click on the number 15 and sign up to give $15 on the 15th day of each month!

Alexis and RoRo were matched this year in our school based program. One of their favorite activities so far was when they spent some time working in the school garden together, despite the rain!

Gunner and Will

Gunner and Will have been matched together for over 3 years. Last month, Will got married and his Little Brother Gunner was in the wedding!
