OUR PROGRAMS

We believe in the values of mentoring

We commit to the families of Langley that we will be leaders in providing them with the highest quality volunteer-based mentoring programs to help them reach their full potential.

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, 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.

Big Sisters

IN SCHOOL MENTORING

Our In-School Mentoring program provides elementary students with a teenage or adult role model to talk to and share the experiences of growing up with. For one hour a week, mentors meet with their mentee and engage in activities such as board games, crafts or just hang out on the playground. Mentoring sessions take place during school hours and on school grounds.

Go Girls!

Go Girls! is a group mentoring program for girls ages 8 – 14 (age requirement may vary depending on location of program) that focusses on physical activity, balanced eating and self-esteem. The single, most important goal of the program is to positively shape the lives of young women and girls by helping them build a positive self-image – setting them on a path to reach their full potential in life.

Go Girls sessions are held after school for 2 hours, and are once a week for 8 weeks.

 

GAME ON!

Game On! is a group mentoring program that provides boys ages 8 – 14 (age requirement may vary depending on location of program) with information and support to make informed choices about a range of healthy lifestyle practices. Through non-traditional physical activities complemented with healthy eating support, participants are engaged in life skills, communication, and emotional health discussions designed to engage participants in the pursuit of life-long healthy lifestyles.

Game On sessions are held after school for 2 hours, and are once a week for 8 weeks.

EXPLORATIONS

Children who participate in Explorations choose from a list of different topics/activities to explore. Mentors from the Langley community provide a safe and fun atmosphere to assist children in building their skills in their chosen Explorations topic through interactive learning and demonstrations.
Participants will have the opportunity to spend one of the two hours in their chosen Exploration group, enhancing their skills and learning about their chosen topic in a supportive environment, while the remaining hour will be spent in a large group, working on positive group dynamics, making new friendships, and enjoying a snack break!
