Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee has been the premiere provider of youth mentoring services in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties for more than 40 years. Their mentoring program makes a profound impact in the lives of at-risk youth by creating and supporting strong, long-lasting one-to-one relationships between children and caring volunteer adult mentors that lead to long-term success.
Big Brothers Big Sisters’ evidence-based service delivery model includes free service to youth, families, and volunteer mentors; careful volunteer screening; thoughtful matching of children and volunteers; comprehensive mentor training; ongoing case management to every child, family, and mentor; integration of educational success strategies into all services; and scientific evaluation to measure outcomes and impact.
Big Brothers Big Sisters’ mentoring program offers three one-to-one options: 1) Community-based mentoring, 2) School-based mentoring, 3) mentor2.0. The organization consistently delivers positive measurable outcomes for youth in its program, including educational success, avoidance of risky behavior, and social and emotional development.
Big Brothers Big Sisters’ commitment to helping youth reach their full potential makes them an ideal partner to help usher in a Governor who knows what is best for our kids is what is best for the state of Wisconsin.
