To provide friendship & mentoring to children through the companionship of one or more adults.
About BIG BROTHERS AND BIG SISTERS OF PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE, INC
We find and match volunteer mentors with children, between the ages of 6-16.
Children who are matched with a mentor are less likely to participate in drugs and alcohol and less likely drop out of school. They are more likely to complete high school and go to post secondary school, as well they have better relationships with their peers and other adults.
