Big Brothers Big Sisters is the oldest and largest youth mentoring organization in the United States. In Butler County, PA, the program has been matching children in need with caring, adult mentors since 1994. BBBS of Butler County has two main programs: the Core One-to-One Mentoring program that matches an adult volunteer (the Big) mentor with a child (the Little); and the COUL Club (Club of Unmatched Littles) that gives children who are waiting for a Big to participate in special activities every month. All activities, trainings and programs are free of charge to all program children, families and volunteers. It is because of our fundraisers that we are able to provide these important services to the community.
