Big Brothers Big Sisters looking for men

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Door County is always looking for volunteers but the need for men is glaring. In 2018, 131 children were served by the organization with 83 being girls and just 48 being boys. Door County Coordinator Patty O'Rourke says that ratio isn't out of the ordinary.

 


Recent statistics show boys faring worse academically compared to girls in grades K-12. That has consequences later on in life with women attending college in greater numbers and a dropping labor force participation rate among men. Proper mentorship may be key in arresting those trends.
