Personal safety remains the priority of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee (BBBS) as we continue to navigate COVID challenges for 2021.

Big Brothers Big Sisters will continue to follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines. In addition, we will follow City of Milwaukee protocol and the Marcus Corporation guidelines at the Pfister Hotel.
