Shawano County

Looking to get involved? Whether you’re interested in enrolling your child, donating or stepping up as a Big, we're here to help children of Shawano County discover their biggest possible potential.

Expanding our services to children and families of Shawano County in 2014, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Wisconsin continues to grow and expand services in the Shawano area.

In 2018, we served 80 children in Shawano, Bonduel and Gillett, partnering with public and private schools and the Boys & Girls Club of Shawano for site-based mentoring.

When compared with their peers, youth matched in our program experience:

84% improvement in socio-emotional competence
82% improvement in avoidance of risky behaviors
83% educational success

Fundraising activities and community engagement are lead by a 12-member Advisory Council of local community members.
