Community Based Program - Big Brother/Big Sister

Cassie Silva, Mentoring Coordinator - Mission and Abbotsford

Mission, British Columbia   V2V 2B5
To be a mentor, your primary responsibility is to have fun and to be a friend. You will enjoy regular every-day activities with a young person and often enjoy extraordinary moments. As a volunteer, you are matched with a child who, for a variety of reasons, will benefit from a mentor. When building the friendship the needs and interests of the family, the child and you are carefully considered. When matched you - the Big - and your Little spend a few hours a week together hanging out, having fun and doing things that you both enjoy. The child benefits from the support and guidance you provide while you benefit by getting a chance to experience life through the eyes of your Little, maybe feeling like a kid again and by knowing that you are making a difference in a young life. The time commitment is two to four hours per week. Our Mentoring Coordinators provide professional screening and support to you, the child and the family.
