Enroll a Child
As a parent or guardian, you recognize the potential of your child better than anyone. By giving your child the opportunity to be part of Big Brothers Big Sisters, you’re starting them down a path to an even brighter, more promising future.
Could your child use a role model?
It all starts with the right role models. And Big Brothers Big Sisters is the place to start a meaningful mentoring relationship. For over 40 years, due in large part to private donations, we’ve been able to recruit, screen, match, and support mentoring relationships that have changed the lives of thousands of young people in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties.
You’ll feel the impact as much as your child.
