They Have The Potential To Change The World. We are standing together to defend it. Join Us.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Midlands (BBBSM) believes that every child has incredible potential, we just need to defend it. We do that through professionally supported mentoring relationships between an adult volunteer, a “Big”, and a “Little” – a young person, in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area. We know youth who are members of the LGBTQIA++ community face many challenges including an increased risk for bullying, suicide attempts, and homelessness. BBBSM is committed to developing positive relationships with adult mentors to be a support in those challenges. We are an inclusive and affirming organization for mentees, mentors, families, and employees of all identities.
