The Center for Community-Based Learning, Leadership, and Research provides the UWM campus with different opportunities to volunteer throughout the city and beyond. Each week of the year there are opportunities to make a real difference in Milwaukee and beyond by working to improve the environment, mentoring local kids, stocking shelves at a food pantry, serving breakfast to Milwaukee’s homeless community, engaging in an alternative spring break, and helping older adults.
It is through this organization that I became involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters. I have been a Big for 2 years now and I am very grateful for the opportunity to have a positive impact on someone's life. I wouldn't have been able to do this without the CBBLR, especially since they provide transportation to and from Keefe Avenue school where I volunteer. So if you're looking for a way to make a difference around Milwaukee check out the CBBLR!!!!!
