Covid-19 Update

The rapid spread of the coronavirus and important measures put in place to reduce the spread of the coronavirus are isolating the young people and families we serve, presenting challenges to their financial, emotional, and physical wellbeing. We are stepping up to keep our Littles connected to their Bigs, provide moral support and essential resources to families.

We are pursuing options for continued engagement so the strong mentoring relationship continues between the mentor and mentee. Staff is working to share activities, methods of staying in touch and sharing resources that will help us all navigate this crisis.

Unfortunately, the ripple effect of the coronavirus and the resulting economic downturn threaten the fundraising channels of local agencies and force cancellations of fundraising events that were critically important to sustain the organizations and continue the needed mentoring services and family support.

The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.

We are focused on making sure our mission will continue as we continue to encourage the mentoring practices, however in a new and digital way during these challenging times of social distancing.

Covid-19 Update

In light of the virus, BBBS feels it is necessary for us to postpone our annual Jefferson county Golf For Kids' Sake event that is held in June. We will be rescheduling it to Monday, August 10th. This will be a one time move, and we will continue to hold in June of 2021.

Watertown Greenhouse has graciously extended our flower sale until March 31st at noon. Pick up locations will be held in Beaver Dam, Watertown and Delavan. Please find the online form available under the Upcoming Events tab.

Our Delavan office will close today, March 23rd at 3PM until further notice. All staff will be working remotely and will still be available by email. All staff contact information is available under our Contact tab.

BBBS is working to do our part in keeping our staff, volunteers and families in our communities safe. If you have any concerns or needs during this time, please reach out.

Stay safe!

We will still continue to hold our Flower Sale as planned and encourage orders to be submitted using the online form. The final deadline for all flower requests will be March 23rd at noon. This online form can be found under the events tab.

Thank you American Bank

Thank you to American Bank for being a sponsor of our Beaver Dam Bowl For Kids’ Sake event. The funds raised were a combination of donations from the employees and the rest was a donation from the bank.

We have merged with BBBS of Dodge County

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Rock, Walworth and Jefferson Counties has recently merged with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dodge County. We are looking forward to working together to build our programs together. The Dodge/Watertown office will continue to operate as always with Kristin and Juliana working with the programs in that area. As a result of the merger the name of the combined agencies has changed and is now, Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central Wisconsin.
