Mission Statement

As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer-supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma matches volunteer mentors (Bigs) with children (Littles) who need help with self-esteem, decision-making, and other areas of life. Our mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.


Our Programs Start Something. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma provides mentors to almost two-thousand children across the state. Unlike many other mentoring organizations, BBBSOK provides a trained, full-time staff that works to ensure matches are perfect both for the mentor and the mentee by initiating a thorough interview process and providing support throughout the life of the match. With BBBSOK's research-proven model and four hours of volunteer mentoring a month, children’s lives are changed.

Big Impact, Proven Results: Independent research shows Littles who remain matched for a year are more confident in their academic and social lives and are significantly less likely to use illegal drugs.

Ways to Get Involved! At BBBSOK, we offer two core programs: school-based mentoring and community-based. With school-based mentoring, a volunteer Big meets once a week with their Little, usually during lunch. During this time, the Big and Little develop strong relationships by working on homework, eating together, or just hanging out. In the traditional community-based program, the Big and Little get together on their own time to share fun activities they both enjoy. Community-based mentoring is a few fun hours a month doing low-cost activities you'd likely already be doing!
