Seeking mentors

Big Brothers Big Sisters

The Big Brothers Big Sisters program of Northern Wisconsin is celebrating 40 years of mentoring by asking 40 men to "man up to mentoring" and become a big brother.

Big Brothers Big Sisters currently has over 60 boys waiting for a Big Brother, said the program. It offers an opportunity to spend at least one hour a week with your "younger brother", while doing activities both people enjoy.

"Being a Big Brother lets you enjoy the simple, fun 'man' things in life again while being a mentor," said CEO Craig Monson. "We always have such a huge need for men, and it's a nationwide challenge. Us guys just are reluctant to volunteer, but we really need men in (the area) to man up right now and help us impact the lives of 40 boys."
