Hundreds of local children need a caring adult role model.

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. A Mentor can help them navigate these challenges so they can reach their full potential.


We stand for

Since 1975, Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Metro Milwaukee has been bringing people from different backgrounds together.  We stand for connection, positivity, inclusion, and empowerment.  As an organization serving primarily youth of color, BBBS is deeply committed to addressing issues of social and racial injustice.  We at BBBS stand in solidarity with our BBBS family – with the Littles, their families, their Bigs, and our generous supporters and donors – in this fight for racial equality, opportunities, and safety for our community.  All of us at BBBS understand that we’re part of the solution, individually and collectively.

We stand against

We stand against racism, violence, injustice, and inequity.  No one organization or one person can do this work alone.  We need each other more than ever to provide the vital mentoring programs that serve our youth and families in our community.

Let’s stand together, focused on building a foundation of peace and justice for all.
