Big Activity Newsletter - June 2017

Hello Bigs!
Happy Summer! The weather is getting warmer and it's a great time to explore local parks, the beach, or just go for a walk with your Little. If you need any ideas for match activities, please contact us. We have a long list that we're happy to share!
Please be sure to check the events calendar below. We've planned some super-fun activities that you won't want to miss. If you haven't yet RSVP'd for Sunday's event at the Boys and Girls Club of Kenosha, please do so right away. We want to make sure we have enough food and supplies!
As you're enjoying the longer days and making memories with your Little, don't forget to keep in touch with your Match Support contact (either Kate or Mandy). Our program requires consistent contact with all parties, so that we can track how the match is progressing and how your Little is working towards his/her goals.
Please let us know if we can help in any way. Thanks for all you do for children in our community!

It only takes a little time to make a Big difference!

Since 1960, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Racine and Kenosha Counties has helped thousands of children achieve their potential. With the assistance of carefully screened, qualified and caring volunteer mentors, we are accountable for every child we serve achieving success in school, at home and in their community. We currently serve 150 boys and girls in southeastern Wisconsin. But 70 children are waiting to be matched with a mentor—some have been waiting for months or even years. These children have the potential to transform this community's future - but whose potential may go untapped without the guidance and involvement of an adult mentor. They need your perspective to awaken them to new possibilities.

Ready to make a Big difference with a little of your time? Fill out an application to be a mentor today!
