WELCOME TO BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS
OF WILL & GRUNDY COUNTIES
We nurture children and strengthen communities.
And we couldn’t do any of it without you!
Founded in 1970 our Big Brothers Big Sisters chapter has helped thousands of children in Will, Grundy, Kane Kankakee, Kendall as well as 6 other counties. BBBS operates under the belief that inherent in every child is incredible potential.
BBBS is the nation’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network – we make meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through young adulthood in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
WE ARE SERIOUS PEOPLE
WE ARE PASSIONATE
WE ARE DETERMINED
Create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
All youth achieve their full potential.
Today we offer a Site-Based Plus mentoring program in coordination with Plainfield District 202 schools in addition to the original community-based mentoring program.
We have a team of passionate, committed, and creative people!
We are blessed and grateful to have the following committed and caring board members without whom we would not be successful.
Neil Narine – President
Alex Boryszewski – Vice President
Katie Napier – Finance Chair
Stephanie Silkey- Governance Chair
Sandy Churchwell- Fund Development
