I am so disappointed by the previous post. BBBS Milwaukee is a fantastic organization and is making a tremendous difference for thousands of children in our community. The vast majority of "littles" come from single-parent, low income families. They truly benefit from having another, perhaps more stable, individual in their lives.
I have been a "Big" for ten years and have seen my "little" grow and thrive. She is now in college! BBBS did a great job matching us in the first place and they have provided guidance and support throughout the years. A tremendously worthwhile organization, I support BBBS with both my time and wallet.

I have been a "Big" for over a year with this organization, and it has been a totally underwhelming experience. I see my "Little" a minimum of 3 times a month. I made a commitment to complete 2 years with my "Little" so I will continue until the end of the second year. To be candid, my "Little" is not remotely needy: on the honor roll, active in sports/ music/theatre, and has a very close and loving family with a parent who is an educated professional. Unfortunately, despite multiple communications with the agency, they affirm that the child is appropriate for the program. It is my impression that they are keeping this child in the program to bolster their "success" rates. I believe my time is wasted being a playmate when I could be truly helping a child in need. Even as a highly active volunteer, I am constantly getting requests to donate money to the organization (which I think is in poor taste). I would not recommend this organization for volunteering or charitable giving.
