Organization Information

Mission Statement

Our mission is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

Description

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Wisconsin serves 5 counties: Chippewa, Dunn, Eau Claire, Price, & St. Croix. We offer 2 different mentoring programs - Community-Based & School/Site-Based.

We were established in 1972 as a Kinship organization and became a Big Brothers Big Sisters affiliated organization in 1995.

We know that mentoring impacts a child's life. In a 2008 study of the children in our program, many of our 'Littles' experienced one or more of the following benefits:

-Increased self-confidence
-Improved academic performance
-Better able to avoid delinquency
-Better sense of future
-Better relationship with their peers
