For almost 40 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As part of the nation's largest donor and volunteer-supported mentoring network, they make meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6-18, in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties. They develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. David was involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee Board of Directors from 2010-2017, and remains a Big Brother currently to his “little” Brandon.
