Resources For Bigs


The Big Resources page is a great place to get started if you don’t know where to go or what to do to be active with your Little. You will find links to materials, places and much more.

Resources for Mentors

We know that kids who have a Big do better in school, are less likely to use drugs and alcohol and have more positive relationships. To ensure the best outcomes for our Littles, our job is to provide ongoing supervision and support.

In addition to the Big Brothers Big Sisters training (online and in-person) that our mentors already have participated in, we recommend the following resources.

Community Resources

2-1-1 A simple, free way to connect all people in need with vital human services for everyday life or in times of crisis. By dialing 2-1-1 or visiting the website from anywhere in the state of Wisconsin, people are linked to information about local resources, from both government and nonprofit organizations.

Very Well Family is a free online resource for pregnancy and parenting.

Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin provides services to people in our communities facing challenges and life transitions. See a list of services offered by county.
