Our Mission Statement:

The Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region’s mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

Saint Joseph’s University’s Big Brothers Big Sisters Program is a fulfilling community service opportunity. Volunteer an hour of your time each week to visit and mentor your Little at one of our two locations.
