The Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program in Door County is making a difference even after the participant’s commitment is over. Former “Bigs” are reconnecting this summer with their “littles” after leaving the program for college. Patty O’Rourke, the Door County coordinator says she often has Big Brothers or Big Sisters wanting to continue the relationship with the younger person they mentored even after they go on to college.
Southern Door school had 65 matches this past year with over 100 matches in Door County as a whole for Big Brothers Big Sisters, according to O’Rourke. You can find contact information to become a part of the Door County Big Brother Big Sister program below.
