Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee
Since 1975, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee (BBBS) has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As part of the nation's largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, we make meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers mentors and youth mentees, ages 6-18, in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties. Our three mentoring programs develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
BBBS develops positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. Our mentoring programs are proven by independent research to help children who face adversity succeed in and out of school. We hold ourselves accountable for each child in our program achieving three priority youth outcomes—educational success, avoidance of risky behaviors, and social skills such as higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships.
BBBS is actively seeking new volunteers. Our professional, trained staff will be with you every step of the way! You can choose from our School-based Mentoring Program, where volunteers and children meet at one of our partnering school sites, our Community-based Mentoring Program, where you plan activities in the community and spend time together around town, or our new mentor2.0 program where you can mentor a Veritas High School student from almost anywhere. College students, young professionals, retirees, couples and many other adults make great mentors!
