Changing perspectives. Changing lives.
When children and teens have the influence of a caring adult, they are more likely to avoid risky behaviors and to focus on academics. Today’s youth face a variety of challenges. Being matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister can help them navigate these challenges and reach their potential.
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
Provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
All children achieve success in life.
By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers, and others in the community we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:
- Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
- Avoidance of risky behaviors
- Educational success
Today we are donating to Big Brothers Big Sisters. Be a part of something BIG. Join us!
Please also keep in mind that there will be MANY MANY animals rescued from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma brought to shelters in Wisconsin. They will need donations and fosters. And really, how can you resist a face like this?
