History and Philosophy

Established in 2008, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater St. Joseph was created when a United Way Leadership St. Joseph class learned that there was a middle school boy in our community that was living in an abandoned house with his family. This boy had made the honor roll at his school, but had nobody to come watch him receive the award that he worked so hard to earn. This boy asked one of the ladies in this leadership group if she would could come watch him receive his award, and with that, this group identified that mentoring was a significant need in our community! This group got to work forming an agency that could provide life changing friendships with a one-to-one focus, by partnering with the best BBBS agency in the nation.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater St. Joseph is a satellite office of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City. As a satellite office we handle all of our own recruitment, fundraising, events, and enrollment, but we share some of the same procedures and enrollment processes/ forms with KC. We serve kids in our community, and our statistics show that our program works! Children in our program are less likely to engage in risk taking behavior including the use of drugs and alcohol, and are more likely to have improved self-esteem and graduate high school. Contact us today to see how you can get involved!
