Learn More About Our Volunteer Programs

We value diversity and are experts in matching youth with mentors based on shared experience and interests.

Right now we have an immediate need for Indigenous volunteers who are interested in being matched with Indigenous youth who have told us they want an Indigenous BIG. Share your passions and culture with a young person today!

Available Volunteer Opportunities

Community Mentoring: Big Brothers Big Sisters Program

Join the BGCBigs family in our Big Brother Big Sister program. We’ll match you with a child or youth as a Volunteer Mentor to spend quality time with them. We know that youth benefit from positive caring adult role models. Learn more.

Why mentor?

Mentoring gives you the opportunity to connect with a young person to inspire positive progress.
Spending time with a young person can be as simple as going for a walk, grabbing a coffee, or seeing a movie – you can support a young person today just by being you!

We are looking for mentors who:

  • have a diverse background of lived experiences
  • represent any culture, sexual orientation, gender or gender expression
  • are passionate about supporting a young person!

No specific skills needed, just your time and passion to ignite potential.
