About Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver

Location:

102 - 1193 Kingsway, 102, Vancouver, BC V5V 3C9, CA

Mission Statement

We enable impactful mentoring relationships where children and youth can discover their power and potential, in collaboration with our local communities.

Description

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. 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 volunteers, individual donors, local businesses, and foundations.
