Big Brothers Big Sisters of Racine and Kenosha Counties

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Racine and Kenosha Counties is dedicated to establishing successful mentoring relationships for all children who need and want them, contributing to better schools, brighter futures, and stronger communities for all.

Our Vision is to help children reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with measurable impact and develop our agency's capacity to provide mentoring services to all children who request Big Brothers and Big Sisters.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is not your typical organization. We help children realize their potential and build their futures. We nurture children and build communities. And we couldn’t do any of it without you.

Start Something Big!

It only takes a little time to make a Big difference!

Since 1960, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Racine and Kenosha Counties has helped thousands of children achieve their potential. With the assistance of carefully screened, qualified and caring volunteer mentors, we are accountable for every child we serve achieving success in school, at home and in their community. We currently serve 150 boys and girls in southeastern Wisconsin. But 70 children are waiting to be matched with a mentor—some have been waiting for months or even years. These children have the potential to transform this community's future - but whose potential may go untapped without the guidance and involvement of an adult mentor. They need your perspective to awaken them to new possibilities.

Ready to make a Big difference with a little of your time? Fill out an application to be a mentor today!
