Big Brothers Big Sisters is a national program, active in every state, matchingchildren who need extra attention with an adult who has the time and ability to commit to give that attention. The Lake Area Big Brothers Big Sisters operates two programs, one where the child meets the adult in the community to go places and do things including visiting the adult's home, and the other where the child meets with the adult only at the child’s school once a week, usually for lunch. Currently Lake Area BBBS supports approximately 20 community matches and 37school matches, including School of the Osage high school students matched with children in the upper elementary. BBBS is always seeking to match new Bigs and Littles. For more information on Big Brothers Big Sisters, visit www.lakebbbs.org.
