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.
