Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Northwoods serves Price, Taylor, Oneida, Vilas, and Southern Ashland Counties in Wisconsin.
We provide children with a volunteer mentor who can provide a positive role model to assist these children in becoming confident, competent, and caring individuals. Children primarily served are between the ages of 5 and 17. The goal of our program is to provide a quality mentor for every child who needs and wants one.
Our programs benefit the community today and in the future. As a youth prevention program, we take pride in helping youth to become greater assets to their communities.
