Make a positive impact that you can see with local youth who struggle with numbers!
Our Mentoring With Math Program aims to support families who are not otherwise able to financially pursue academic support opportunities outside of school.
This program is designed to strengthen the impact of tutoring by adding in the element of mentorship. Learning from a Mentor as a positive role model encourages self-esteem and confidence-building for the Mentees as they work through math problems together. Snacks, math workbooks, and other supplies are provided.
Who can be a Math Mentor?
- Adults 18+, inclusive of male, female, trans, and gender diverse individuals.
- Inclusive and welcoming of Mentors of all sexual orientations.
- Reliability, consistency, dedication, and respectfulness of others.
What are the requirements?

- Available to meet weekly Monday to Thursday between 3:30 PM and 5:30 PM for 90-minute sessions.

- Children in grades 3-7 who demonstrate a need for assistance in math at their grade level
How does the program work?
Children in grades 3 - 7 are able to attend Mentoring with Math sessions each week for 90 minutes. For the first part of the session, volunteers will use a variety of techniques based on the principles of the JUMP Math numeracy program to encourage an understanding and love of math. The second part of each weekly session will encourage students in the program to interact with one another through a number of games and activities.
Who tutors the children in the program?
The volunteers are not professional tutors but volunteers who have a desire to support children in their community. They are only available for assistance during the 90-minute program session. All volunteers go through Big Brothers’ screening and training process before joining the program.

About Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver
102 - 1193 Kingsway, 102, Vancouver, BC V5V 3C9, CA
We enable impactful mentoring relationships where children and youth can discover their power and potential, in collaboration with our local communities.
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.
