Happy National Volunteer Week! We would like to thank each and every one of you for the difference you make in the lives of thousands of children across this community. At Boys & Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters (BGCBigs) we so often talk about how mentoring and after-school programs can change a child’s life, and you are the people who make that possible. You help open a door to a brighter future for us all.
You are the folks who quietly, every single day, ensure that over 5,000 of our kids know that they are cared about. You work with them in Clubs, in schools, and out in the community. Many of you work on our boards and committees, you help out at fundraising events, and support us through other important work.
Each of you is making a difference.
Studies show us that kids with an additional positive role model are more confident, have better social skills, and are more likely to finish high school. Thank you for making that positive change possible for so many kids.
BGCBigs is honoured that you – our 3,000+ volunteers – have chosen to work with us. Our community is blessed to know that you care so much about the next generation of young people, and our kids are so grateful that you take time out of your busy lives to spend with them. Please know that our communities are better places because of wonderful citizens like you. On behalf of our board, staff, children, and families, thank you so much for everything you do.
