“Make a BIG difference by giving a LITTLE time”

Why Be a Mentor?

Mentors help children succeed. Big Brothers Big Sisters is different from other mentoring organizations in that we ask our volunteers to commit for a minimum length of time (typically one year), yet hope that our community-based matches continue until the child graduates high school. Studies show that our mentoring services help children stay in school, avoid risky behaviour, and experience first-hand the importance of helping others in their community.

Professional staff will work with you, the child and their family, throughout the course of the mentoring relationship to provide training and support.

There are hundreds of children from across the Capital Regional District who are matched with a mentor each year. However, the number of children waiting for a mentor is often greater than the amount of funding received by our agency.

We are grateful that you want to be involved and, while it is certainly not a requirement, we invite you to consider becoming a donor too. Thank you for all your support.
