Big Brothers Big Sisters Mentoring

As a collective movement, the Big Brothers Big Sisters mission is to enable mentoring relationships that ignite the power and potential of young people. Whether through one-to-one mentoring, in-school mentoring or one of the inspiring group mentorship opportunities, BBBS agencies across Canada commitment to the development of young people remains steadfast.

Our no-cost mentoring programs strive to reach young people who face adversity and are in need of an additional supportive relationship. Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies formally match young people with an adult volunteer Mentor.

Mentors are professionally trained and supported to ignite the unique power and potential of each Mentee. Big Brothers Big Sisters provides every match with access to a professional caseworker who provides support to both the Mentee, Mentor and family.

Current research suggests that young people are more likely to flourish when they are embedded in a web of relationships with supportive, caring adults. This is the essences of Big Brothers Big Sisters programs; providing the relationships that young people need to succeed.
