In life, there are few things more rewarding
than making a positive impact
on the lives of young people. Whether
you are a parent and want to put your
experience to use, if you’re looking to
gain experience with czhildren, or just
want to do something fun, Big Brothers
Big Sisters of Gallatin County in Big
Sky is a great place to start.

The Gallatin County agency was
founded in 1973 by a dedicated group
of County residents. The Big Sky
branch was created in 2000 and has
served more than 173 children. Big
Brothers Big Sisters is a proven prevention
program that provides children facing
adversity with strong and enduring,
professionally supported one-on-one
relationships that change their lives
for the better. Big Brothers Big Sisters
matches children (Littles) five through
15 with adult (Bigs) mentors.
Our Bigs are asked to commit to spending
one to two hours per week with their
Little for 18 months. The program has
tremendous impacts on the lives of
both our children and volunteers. We
are dedicated to providing opportunities
to enjoy the magic that comes from
making a new friend.
In Big Sky, our goal is to double the
number of Big Sky children served in
active match relationships from our
current seven matches. We are in need
of volunteers in order to keep pace with
the needs of our children and families,
and this will require a record number of
volunteers. By becoming involved, you
can truly influence the life of a child,
and you will both be forever changed
by the experience.
One of the ways we raise funds for
the local branch is the upcoming
10th Annual Big Brothers Big Sister
Celebrity Golf Tournament beginning
Sunday, July 10, with a Celebrity
Draw Cocktail Party followed by
the tournament on July 11 at the Big
Sky Golf Course. All proceeds from
the Celebrity Golf Tournament go
toward matching children in Gallatin
County. This year, we’ll be making
significant changes to the tournament
to get our matches more involved
with the celebrities and events.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Gallatin
County in Big Sky brings effective and
life-changing relationships to many
children. To find information about
our programs and services, how to
