Starting Something Since 1961
At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we've been impacting the lives of children for over 50 years, and we're just getting started.
Think back to when you were younger. Who was the person in your life who made a difference to you? It may have been a neighbor who taught you a new skill, a cousin who took you to your first ball game, an aunt or uncle or family friend who taught you how to play catch or ride a bike or fly a kite or do your math homework.
These are all magical moments for children that help them develop confidence in themselves, and caring for the world around them. We all had someone in our lives, other than a parent, who made a difference to us. This is what you can do for a child in our program. It's so simple-it's just a matter of making yourself available on a consistent basis. It's showing you care. It's having fun. It's listening to your Little Brother or Little Sister talk about whatever is going on in their life. It's a series of small, teachable moments that in the end instill a sense of wonder, warmth and magic into their lives.
We're happy to welcome you to our Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Black Hills site where you can explore our history, programs and activities, discover how easy it is to become a mentor or enroll a child in Big Brothers Big Sisters and learn how you can help support Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Black Hills!
