Our Programs

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northcentral Wisconsin matches children ages 6 through 14 with mentors in professionally supported one-to-one relationships.

Making the Connection

Matches come together through our two essential programs:

  • Community-based Mentoring: For as little as an hour a week, Bigs and Littles meet in their community to share fun activities … stories … and a little bit of themselves. Learn more
  • School-based Mentoring: Bigs and Littles meet once a week in schools to talk and have fun. It’s not about being a tutor … it’s about being a friend. Learn more

How a Big becomes a Big (and a Little a Little)?
A lot of things have to happen before we make a match. All our Bigs go through a thorough background check and careful interview process. Then we match Bigs and Littles based on location, personalities and preferences. And we provide full support along the way — so that matches can grow into lasting friendships.

What Do Bigs and Littles Do?
Getting together is a great time for both Bigs and Littles. It doesn’t require a special occasion or expensive activities; just a few hours every month sharing simple things you already enjoy with a young person. Things like….

  • Shooting hoops
  • Playing a board game
  • Sharing a pizza
  • Taking a walk in the park
  • Or just hanging out and talking
