Big Sisters of Central Indiana began serving girls in our community in 1974 and we are proud to continue to empower the potential of over 700 young women annually through the support of female role models – matches like Little Sister Mae and Big Sister Vicki who built a lifelong friendship during the eight years they were matched together. In 2020, Mae graduated from Purdue University, where she studied Forestry and Wildlife. “My Big Sister inspired me and believed in me, and because of that, I believed in myself.” – Little Sister Mae, BBBSCI Class of 2016
