Big Brothers and Big Sisters

image003

Big Brothers Big Sisters is now accepting applications for girls and boys between the ages of 6-12 years who could benefit from having a positive friend and role model in their lives!

If you know of a boy or girl who you feel might be a good candidate for our Community-Based mentoring program (Big Brothers & Big Sisters) please feel free to share this information (and the attached application) with their parent/guardian, or anyone else among your staff or in the community that you feel could know someone who might be interested in getting their child involved.   

There are many reasons why a child could benefit from having a mentor – maybe they come from a single-parent family and their parent doesn’t have enough time to do all the things their child wants to do, maybe they have struggles at school or are bullied and feel like they need a friend who can help boost their self-esteem, perhaps they have endured a lot of challenges in their life and feel they need someone outside of their family unit to talk to and be a support person, or maybe they just need a friend who will listen and have fun with them and let them be a kid.

We accept referrals from children in all sorts of family/living situations: single parent, dual parent, separated, shared custody, foster care, group homes, etc.  If a child wants to be involved and can effectively communicate about their experience in the Program to their Bigs and BBBS staff, they are usually a good candidate for the Big-Little program.  This program is also completely FREE which makes it accessible to all.

You can visit our website to find out more about the programs we offer and how to get involved at http://www.helpingkids.ca/en/Home/mentoringprograms/default.aspx

Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to request other information!
