The In School Mentoring program provides girls and boys with a role model and a friend to talk to and share the experiences of growing up with, within school grounds. For one hour a week, mentors meet with their mentee and engage in activities such as board games, crafts or just hang out in the playground.

The In School Mentoring program requires a weekly visit of 1 hour for the duration of the school year. Matches do not meet over the summer break or during other school holidays.

The program strives to do the following:

  • Provide a role model and a friend for girls and boys
  • 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

Mission Statement

Big Brothers Big Sisters enables life-changing mentoring relationships to ignite the power and potential of young people

Description

We believe every child should have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential, both as individuals and citizens - that by doing so, they will not only do well, they will also do good.

We believe that by changing the course of young lives, we can in turn be changing the course of a community’s future. It could lead to a reduction in poverty and unemployment, or to safer schools and neighbourhoods. It could lead to a renewed optimism for growth, or could even lead to change on a broader, more far-reaching scale.

We believe that opening a child’s eyes to what is, opens their mind to what could be.

For nearly one hundred years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has been making a positive difference in the lives of our nation’s youth by developing and implementing a wide range of mentoring programs. One-to-one and group programs for both in and outside of school ensure there's a program suited to everyone!

Serving as role models, our mentors teach by example the importance of giving and giving back, of staying in school, and of having respect for family, peers and community. Each time we pair a child with a mentor or introduce a group of students to an in-school program, we start something incredible - a life-changing relationship built on friendship, trust and empowerment.

Whether it’s in the form of time or money there is no more important investment we as individuals can make than in helping our nation’s children realize - and share - their full potential.
