For almost 50 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of London and Area has been supporting children and youth (Littles) in our community by providing them with a mentor, or a Big, as we call them. All our programs—whether it’s 1:1 matching or group sessions—have the gold standard of mentorship at their core.
The In-School 1:1 Mentoring Program provides young people who face adverse childhood experiences with another caring adult in their life – someone who they can talk to and share their experiences of growing up with. Through weekly visits on school grounds, a relationship is developed between the Big and Little that is built on trust and common interests, and is supported by our dedicated case-workers. The result is a life-changing experience for both the Big and Little.
