Overview: This is a twist on the traditional Big Brothers Big Sisters program. What makes this version unique is that you get to volunteer with your partner. Two mentors (Big) and one mentee (Little) spend time together building a friendship based on trust, support, common interests, and fun! Bigs and Littles participate in a variety of activities – everything from riding bikes, skating, reading, working on homework, cooking, playing video games to just talking and sharing with each other.
Mentees: Anyone between the age of 6 and 18. These kids just need a little extra support
Mentors: Anyone over the age of 18 who cares about kids
Minimum Commitment: 1 hour every week or 2 hours every other week for a minimum of one year
Availability: Edmonton, Strathcona County, Parkland County, Cold Lake, Lac La Biche, Morinville, Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, & Vegreville
Where: In the community at sporting events, festivals, coffee shops, swimming pools, libraries etc
When: Evenings and/or weekends when the mentor and mentee are both available
