Becoming a Big is more important now than ever as COVID-19 continually changes life for our communities. Kids in your community need Bigs like you to bring support and instill confidence as we all navigate this challenging time.

Big Brothers Big Sisters serves young people from age five through young adulthood in one-to-one mentoring friendships. Bigs and Littles hang out 2-3 times a month for a few hours doing normal, everyday activities, like seeing a movie, doing homework, playing games, going out to eat, or just hanging out!

Each match is supported by a dedicated Match Support Specialist who is always there to provide resources and support specific to the Little’s age. With a Big in their life, Littles in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program are empowered to ignite their potential as they grow in their self-esteem, earn better grades, and develop a lifelong friendship with their Big.

Mission Statement

Create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

Description

​It all started in 1904, when a young New York City court clerk named Ernest Coulter was seeing more and more boys come through his courtroom. He recognized that caring adults could help many of these kids stay out of trouble, and he set out to find volunteers. That marked the beginning of the Big Brothers movement.

​Big Brothers began in Racine and Kenosha in 1960. In 1984, our services were expanded to include girls. From the late 1970s through the early 1990s, the Kenosha program was known as "Kinship." In 1996, the Kinship program of Kenosha affiliated itself with Big Brothers Big Sisters merging with the Racine program to become Big Brothers Big Sisters of Racine & Kenosha Counties Inc., (BBBS) as it is known today.
