For almost 50 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of London and Area has been supporting children and youth who face adverse childhood experiences by providing them with a mentor. All our programs—whether it’s 1:1 matching or group sessions—have the gold standard of mentorship at their core.
We offer the following two In-School Group Mentoring Programs:
Go Girls! Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds is a program for girls ages 12-14 that focuses on physical activity, balanced eating and self-esteem. The single, most important goal of the program is to positively shape the lives of young women and girls by helping them build a positive self-image – setting them on a path to reach their full potential in life.
Game On! Eat Smart, Play Smart, Live Smart is a program for boys ages 12-14 that provides them with information and support to make informed choices about a range of healthy lifestyle practices. Participants engage in non-traditional physical activities (always with a healthy snack), life skills and positive discussions that encourage them to achieve their full potential.
