On July 1, we’ll be celebrating 10 years as a merged BGC and Big Brothers Big Sisters organization!
We’ve always believed that we’re BETTER TOGETHER!
Before we became BGCBigs (Boys & Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters of Edmonton & Area), we had a long history of amalgamations dating back to 1976!
1962-Edmonton’s Boys’ Clubs was formed.
1972-Big Sisters Society of Edmonton was formed.
1976- Edmonton’s Boys’ Clubs changed to Boys & Girls Clubs of Edmonton
1980- Big Brothers of Edmonton was formed.
1990- Big Brother of Edmonton & Big Sister Society merged to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Edmonton
2011-Boys & Girls Clubs amalgamated with Big Brothers Big Sisters to become BGCBigs (Boys & Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters of Edmonton & Area)
While this year we celebrate 10 years together, we have almost 60 years of history serving children & youth in Edmonton and area!
