Take the First Step

We don’t create potential, we just defend it. Hundreds of kids in Central Indiana are waiting for someone to step up and stand in their corner. Take the first step to become a Big by following these steps:

  1. Watch the video and then choose whether you’re ready to “Apply to Be a Big” or you need to “Learn More” through a call with one of our team members.
  2. Complete the form, and a BBBS staff member will be in contact with you in 1-2 business days.

Ready to Become a Big?

Hear from a Big:

“You don’t have to be anything special. You’re someone who wants to contribute to someone else’s life. You want to make a connection in someone else’s life. And that’s really what matters. If you feel the need to share that love and care with someone, this is such a great way to do that.”
