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.

BBBSNEW BIGS Tool Box Facebook Page

 

BBBSNEW has launched a NEW Facebook page designed for Bigs to be their “Go-To” resource for activities, events and ideas that they can share with their Little. This is a “Private” Facebook page for Bigs of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Wisconsin only.

BBBSNEW will post daily and weekly REACH activities, deals for Bigs and Littles, teen activities, pics of past BBBSNEW events and ideas for places to see and go with your little. By visiting the page you’ll get the most current information on “Things To Do” with your Little!

Only BBBSNEW Bigs who are members of this page can see who’s in the group and what they post. If you haven’t received an email invitation, please email your Program Specialist.
