Mentors, or Bigs as we call them, are not saviors. Or heroes. They are regular people like you who invest a little time into kids in Sheboygan and Manitowoc Counties to help them ignite and harness their potential - potential they've had all along - and give back to the community.

Every child has the potential to do something great. A caring adult can empower a child to achieve their brightest future possible. And it's not just a one-way street. Mentoring can make a difference in your life too, even bringing you a lifelong friend.

Apply to become a Big today. We have more than 30 kids on our waiting list who need a caring adult to stand in their corner. Our professional staff will support you from the day you apply until the conclusion of your match.

Just being there for your Little tells them they matter - that there's someone there to help during day-to-day challenges. Time spent together doing "normal" things in your world can open your Little's eyes to a whole new view of what their brightest possible future can look like. Bigs aren't perfect, they're just present.
