Big Brothers Big Sisters of St. Catharines – Thorold & District

 

Big Brothers Big Sisters is Canada’s leading youth mentorship agency.
 
Mentoring is rewarding!
 

 

In our own lives, each of us was touched by someone other than our parents who introduced us to new things and brought a little extra something into our lives. As a Big Brother or Big Sister, you can do that too! Celebrate the joy of everyday moments, and bring possibility into a child’s life. Help create moments where you get back as much as you give. Know that you enrich a life just by being there.
 
Big Brothers Big Sisters St. Catharines – Thorold & District supports more than 800 children annually in mentoring friendships. We have nearly 200 children and youth still waiting for that special friend to share those special moments in their lives.
 
Our need for Big Brothers and Big Sisters has been steadily growing over the years, and is at its highest point ever. Research has proven that having a Big Brother or Big Sister helps children avoid drug and alcohol abuse, do better in school, get along with others and gain self-confidence. We see first-hand the impact our mentoring programs have on children. With more wonderful children and youth ready and waiting, we are in need of more volunteers.
Be part of something “BIG” today!
