Impact on Community

We’re Big Brothers Big Sisters.

We believe every child should have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential, both as individuals and citizens – that by doing so, they will not only do well, they will also do good.

We believe that by changing the course of young lives, we can in turn be changing the course of a community’s future. It could lead to a reduction in poverty and unemployment, or to safer schools and neighbourhoods. It could lead to a renewed optimism for growth, or could even lead to change on a broader, more far-reaching scale.

We believe that opening a child’s eyes to what is, opens their mind to what could be.

For nearly one hundred years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has been making a positive difference in the lives of our nation’s youth by developing and implementing a wide range of mentoring programs. One-to-one and group programs for both in and outside of school ensure there's a program suited to everyone!

Serving as role models, our mentors teach by example the importance of giving and giving back, of staying in school, and of having respect for family, peers and community. Each time we pair a child with a mentor or introduce a group of students to an in-school program, we start something incredible – a life-changing relationship built on friendship, trust and empowerment.

Witnessing the transformation of a child into a confident, concerned, and motivated young person is a remarkable thing. Ushering them into adulthood, seeing them grow into a successful, responsible member of their community and society at large is even more satisfying. Proudly, it’s something our staff, volunteers and donors help bring about every day, and we’re very grateful for their generosity and support.

Whether it’s in the form of time or money there is no more important investment we as individuals can make than in helping our nation’s children realize – and share – their full potential.

We’re Big Brothers Big Sisters, and we believe in the value and values of mentoring.
