One to One Mentoring
Big Brothers Big Sisters Program
Our One-to-One mentoring program provides young people with positive role models. Through consistent outings, a relationship is developed between the Big and the Little, built on trust and common interests, and supported by our experienced Mentoring Coordinators. The result is a life-changing experience for both the adult and the child.
The One-to-One mentoring program typically consists of two regularly scheduled outings a month of a few hours each and a minimum of a one year commitment.
The In-School mentoring program takes place at the child’s school, during school hours. For one hour a week, a volunteer mentor meets with their mentee and engages in activities such as board games, crafts or physical activity.
The In-School mentoring program requires a weekly visit of one hour for the duration of the school year, at a time agreed upon by the volunteer and the school. Matches do not meet over the summer break or during other school holidays.
This school-based program matches elementary school students with high school students, under the guidance of adult mentors. Students participate in group activities on a regular basis. Younger students gain valuable social interaction with friends and the high school students learn leadership skills and the benefits of being a volunteer.
