Building a strong community where youth can reach their full potential is important to the We Energies Foundation and Johnson Controls – they care about Milwaukee and the bright futures of our children. We would like to thank them for being our presenting sponsors of the Big Gala, November 6th, and believing in the power of mentoring. With their generous support we are changing lives …one child at a time.

A BIG Thank you to Dr. Amber Tucker and Roufusport MMA Academy for hosting our matches for a “Fight Like a Girl” class to empower our women and girl matches. This was a great way to learn about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, a martial art and form of self-defense. Amber shared real-life strategies involving situational awareness to avoid confrontations. Matches also learned basic escapes and techniques to get out of harm’s way. Martial arts are a positive way to build body confidence by learning to love what your body can do, regardless of shape or size.

Our Story

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee’s mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

Since 1975, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee has been the premier provider of youth mentoring services in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties. Our mentoring program makes a profound impact in the lives at-risk youth by creating and supporting strong, long-lasting one-to-one relationships between children and caring volunteer adult mentors. Big Brothers Big Sisters’ mentoring program offers three unique one-to-one options: 1)Community-based mentoring, 2)School-based mentoring, 3)mentor2.0. In each, volunteers make a minimum two year commitment to mentoring a child; engage with their mentee 3-4 times per month; and provide role modeling, friendship, and guidance to increase positive youth outcomes. We hold ourselves accountable for each child in our mentoring program achieving educational success, avoidance of risky behavior, and social and emotional development.

Girls Crossfit day out! New work out tips to make us stronger. 💪🏃‍♀️😊👭
Post from Little Preston "Dj" Golden: I couldnt wait until I got old enough to get a Big Brother or Big Sister through BBBS because both my brothers had one and I felt left out. When I finally was old enough for the program and matched I was lucky enough to end up with 2 Bigs! My Big Brother Greg and my Big Sister Heidi, we just celebrated our 1 year match Anniversary and I am happy to have them as my Bigs. Thank You Greg and Heidi!!!
Dan Kieffer, and his Little, Torrance, my Little André, saw First Stage's "Antartica" this afternoon. It is about seven kids in Milwaukee, dealing with the challenging issues that come from growing up in Milwaukee, organizing and being part of the resistance. It was a timely message for our two young men.
Fear the deer! Thx for the tickets!
I have an interest in learning more about this program in the Waukesha area. Can yoh share some of your experiences?
Thank you BBBS for the great tickets and seats to see the MB11 dancers perform. It was the first ballet show for the both of us. 👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👯‍♀️
I am reaching out to you as we at @EchoVoices (link to page https://www.facebook.com/OfficialEchoVoices/) are quite impressed by what your organization and your members embody. Thus, we would like to ask if you are interested in being a contributor for an upcoming social venture that will not only allow your members to connect with each other but reach individuals just as passionate and engaged as you are from all corners of the globe. Based in Orange County, California, we are a social platform focused on causes, doing good, and movements across the globe. There are 4 major parts to our website: 1. Voices: This is for members to share their thoughts and the heart of the platform which is where the name of our platform comes from. 2. World: (News/ Articles/ Opinions/ Insights) We scour all over the world and discover the most interesting, unique, and thought-provoking articles, videos, stories, art, documentaries, and movements that cannot be found on mainstream media to provide our members different perspectives. 3. Mentoring: Members can pose questions to our mentors who are thoughtful leaders in their respective fields. 4. Petition, Movement, and Pay It Forward: To inspire and encourage our members to speak up, share their passions, and inspire others to do the right thing. As a contributor, you will get to interact with like-minded individuals also seeking to raise their voice and be a part of a growing community that is making a real impact on our society. It is important for us to note that this site is not for everyone. We encourage members to think critically about these various issues just as much as the sheer act of speaking up. That is where the challenge lies. Are you up for the challenge? If so, please visit our website: www.echovoices.com.
