We have two unique opportunities for interested volunteers to connect with us face-to-face and learn more about our mentoring programs.


Throughout the year, we offer different opportunities for you to learn about becoming a volunteer mentor first-hand.

- Come to a Mix@Six or Mix in the Morning to meet current mentors and hear about their volunteer experiences.
- Meet with a staff member one-to-one at a local coffee shop.

Sign up for one today!

Social Events

Our Mix@Six and Mix in the Morning are  great opportunities for prospective volunteers to meet current mentors and hear first-hand about their experiences. Big Brothers Big Sisters staff will discuss the specifics of our three mentoring opportunities and answer your questions. Socials are held at fun venues around Milwaukee and Waukesha, and are always free. We encourage you to bring an adult guest(s) along too.

Did you know a little time can make a BIG difference in the life of a youth?
There are hundreds of youth on our wait list that could use a mentor just like YOU.

Meet us for Coffee

Meet with our Volunteer Recruitment & Engagement Coordinator for a virtual coffee to learn about our volunteer opportunities. We will connect one-on-one to discuss our program and show the impact you could have on a youth in our community by supporting our mission by becoming a mentor.
