Alumni

Part of Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence's (BBBS Independence) focus is to reconnect with former Bigs, Littles, staff, board members and key supporters. Our Alumni Committee has been hard at work connecting with BBBS Independence constituents with whom we may have lost contact.

If you know any BBBS Independence alumni (former Bigs, Littles, board members or staff), please send their names and contact information (email, phone number, mailing address) to alumni@independencebigs.org or reach out to Bailey Wood. Join a community with great stories.
