Big Brothers and Big SistersHelping our youth
The Big Brothers Big Sisters mission is to help children reach their full potential through professionally supported, one-to-one mentoring relationships. The agency provides children in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties with caring, adult mentors for consistent, supportive relationships. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee is one of over 450 affiliates of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, the largest and oldest youth mentoring organization in the country. In 2004, BBBS of Metro Milwaukee provided mentoring services to nearly 1,600 children.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is not just a feel-good social cause. National research has proven that BBBS volunteers make a lasting impact in the lives of the children they mentor.
Public and Private Ventures, a nationally recognized program development and research organization, conducted a comparative study that revealed that kids matched with “Bigs” are more likely to show positive behaviors in school and at home than children not matched with a Big. “Littles” who met with their Bigs regularly for about a year:
- were less likely to start using drugs and alcohol
- were less likely to engage in violent behavior
- improved their school attendance, performance and attitudes toward schoolwork
- improved their peer and family relationships
