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?

  • Minimum 10-week commitment
  • Available to meet weekly Monday to Thursday between 3:30 PM and 5:30 PM for 90-minute sessions.
  • Programs offered in-person every 3-4 months in Surrey, Burnaby, Vancouver, and Coquitlam.

Who are the Little Buddies?

  • 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.
