COVID-19 (Updates & Resources for Volunteers)

Current Volunteer Program Updates

If you are currently a volunteer with BGCBigs, we want to keep you informed as to the steps we have recently taken in response to COVID-19 and how you can still stay connected with our children and families through alternative means.

BGCBig Club Programs Resources/Updates

Clubs have moved online: Our clubs are creating online content and posting it to our social media in order to still communicate with club kids. Learn more: https://bgcbigs.ca/programs-for-kids/clubs/

At this time, each of our BGCBig Club run program sites are closed. We will be updating each of our club sites individually as we run programming with our partners and working thru how this will look over the next while. Our agency is exploring alternative ways of providing essential services to our clients, more information is to come.

BGCBig Community Based Matches Resources/Updates

Currently all in-person contact between our matches is suspended until April 3rd, 2020. The agency will not be approving any overnights between March 16th – April 3rd, 2020. We do want to recommend that matches continue to use technology to communicate and stay in touch.  Please connect with each other (Skype, FaceTime, Phone, etc) to check in with each other as well as to discuss the current events. For a list of activity ideas, please see the linked letter below.
