BIG BROTHERS

The Big Brothers mentoring program provides boys and young men with a role model to talk to and share the experiences of growing up with. Through regular outings, a relationship is developed between the mentor and the mentee, which is built on trust and common interests, and is supported by our experienced case-workers. The result is a life-changing experience for both the mentor and the mentee.

The program strives to do the following:
  • Provide a role model and a friend for boys and young men
  • Promote the importance of staying in school and healthy relationships with family and peers
  • Instill trust and self-confidence in order to make healthy decisions
  • Encourage leadership skills and independent thinking
  • Have mentors make a difference while having fun
