Changing perspectives. Changing lives.
Since 1966, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in our Dane County community. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
Provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
To create positive change within our community through the power of one-to-one mentoring.
By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers, and others in the community we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:
• Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
• Avoidance of risky behaviors
• Educational success
