Our Agency

Since 1975, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee has been making meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6-18, in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties.  Our programs are free to Littles and their families.  The friendships we create last a lifetime.  Our positive youth outcomes foster generational change.

 In 2017, for the second consecutive year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee earned the prestigious “Pinnacle Award” from Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.  This award is the highest honor a Big Brothers Big Sisters affiliate can receive.  It is achieved by delivering exceptional program metrics and outcomes, including high retention rates, high quality case management, and fiscal stability.
