Big Brothers Big Sisters

The In School Mentoring program

The In School Program provides youth with a role model and a friend to talk to and share the experiences of growing up within school grounds. For one hour a week, mentors meet with their mentee and engage in activities such as board games, crafts or just hang out on school grounds.
The In School Mentoring program requires a weekly visit of one hour for the duration of the school year. Matches do not meet over the summer break or during other school holidays.

Peer Mentoring

Want to have a fun and cool volunteer experience at school?
Peer Mentoring is a program designed specifically for High School students.
Students in grade 11 or 12 (Mentors) are matched with students in the lower grades (Mentees) to provide them with support, encouragement and to have some FUN!
Mentors and Mentees are matched one-on-one based on their interests and personalities. Matched pairs meet every week on school property, usually during lunch break, and spend that time together playing sports, sharing interests or just hanging out and talking. The goal of the program is to increase self-esteem and encourage healthy decision making in the students being Mentored.
Volunteering is a great way to build your resume and the local agency pays for your grad fees as a thank you for your service.
Each year 3 “Shining Stars” are chosen based on their dedication and commitment to the program as well as their impact on their Mentee.
