Big Brothers Mentoring Program
Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver
You’ll be matched with a "Little Brother" in your area who needs a positive male influence. Spend two to four hours with your "Little" once a week - hike, bike, or just hang out.
What we do today makes a difference tomorrow. 2+ hours each week is all it takes to become a Big Brother. Become a kid again by doing a variety of fun activities and games with a Little Brother, aged 7 - 14.
The Big Brothers Mentoring program provides boys with a role model and a friend to talk to and share the experiences of growing up with. Through regular outings, a friendship is developed between the Big and Little Brother, that is built on trust and common interests. The result is a life-changing experience for both the mentor and the mentee.
All it takes is 2-4 hours each week, and a minimum one-year commitment to the program. Develop new skills, try out new activities and be a role model. Some of the activities Big and Little Brothers like do to are:
- Arts and crafts
- Mini golf
- Listening to music
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver

We support child and youth development through essential Volunteer-led mentoring programs.
When our children are emotionally, socially and physically healthy, everyone in the community benefits. That’s why we’ve worked with community stakeholders to develop a variety of programs to meet the needs of children and families in Greater Vancouver and the Sea to Sky Cooridor. Having one or more caring adults in a child’s life can help prevent issues like bullying and crime, so that children can grow in to more resilient, more giving, and more compassionate adults. Join us in strengthening communities, one child at a time. All of our programs and services are offered to families free of charge, thanks to the support of individual donors, local businesses, and foundations.
