Mission Statement

Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Peterborough promotes the growth and development of at-risk children and youth in our community through the provision of mentoring programs with positive adult role models.

Description

Big Brothers Big Sisters creates individual and group mentoring relationships amongst adults and youths.

Mentorship is a two-way, learning and development partnership where the young person needs are placed at the centre.

Because young people's brains are still developing, mentoring can support that process through back-and-forth interaction like the volley in a good game of ping-pong.
Mentoring is an important way to give youth experience with these essential back-and-forth relationships, developing them into healthy young people better able to deal with and overcome life's adversities.
