Graduation


Graduation

Graduation is a special time at Big Brothers Big Sisters. It signifies the end of our program for Bigs and Littles, and marks a new beginning as our Littles go off into the world. To celebrate our Little’s hard work and dedication to the program and their education, each year we organize a graduation ceremony for all of the graduates, and their Bigs and families.

The class of 2018’s ceremony and reception will be held at the Wisconsin State Capitol Building on Wednesday, May 30th from 5:30 -7:00 PM.
