Breaking Barriers, Unlocking Potential.

Many children and youth in Canada are facing societal barriers and adversities, such as family violence, identity challenges, school issues, and mental health risks. These situations can hinder their chances of achieving their full potential. If left unaddressed, they may result in continuing cycles of poverty, crime, and mental health issues.

However, these circumstances have nothing to do with the value of who these children and youth are or who they can become. It’s crucial to provide support and resources to help them overcome these challenges, empowering them to succeed in life. This can involve safe living conditions, access to mental health services, and mentorship. Every child and youth deserves a chance to reach their full potential, no matter their background.

Many children and youth in Canada face significant barriers in their lives, such as detrimental living conditions, family violence, mental health risks, identity challenges, and school issues. These challenges can hinder their chances of achieving their full potential and have negative consequences for both the individual and society as a whole.

That’s why Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada is committed to providing mentorship to over 41,400 children and young people across the country. Through its network of more than 20,700 volunteers in 102 member agencies, the organization helps reduce the risks associated with these challenges and empowers youth to overcome obstacles and achieve their dreams. By investing in the future of Canadian youth, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada is working towards creating a brighter future for all.

Empowering Youth To Rise Above Adversity

The Big Brothers program provides boys and young men with a positive role model for support and guidance, building a relationship of trust and common interests through regular outings and activities. Both the mentor and mentee benefit from this one-to-one mentoring experience, which is supported by experienced case-workers and leads to increased self-esteem, academic success, and overall well-being of the mentees.

Mentors provide guidance based on their own experiences and wisdom, helping mentees make positive choices. This creates a deeper understanding and respect between them, strengthening their bond and creating a lasting relationship.

The Big Sisters program provides girls with a mentor to talk to and bond with through regular outings, resulting in increased self-confidence and better mental health.

Who Supports Us

In school mentoring

Helping Shape Young Minds

School-based mentors, who are also students, spend their lunch hour at an elementary school to engage in activities such as board games or outdoor play with a young person. The focus is on non-academic activities, and mentors are encouraged to participate only in engaging activities.
