We commit to the young people in our community that we will be leaders in providing them with the highest quality, volunteer-based mentoring programs to expand their horizons, realize their potential and enrich their futures.
Our vision is to ensure that every child who needs a mentor has a mentor.
ABOUT OUR CHARITY
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Newfoundland has been making a positive difference in the lives of children and youth in our community by developing and implementing a wide range of volunteer based mentoring programs since 1975. Each time we pair a child with a volunteer we start something incredible - a life-changing relationship built on trust, friendship and empowerment. Our mentors teach by example the importance of giving and giving back, of staying in school, and of having respect for family, peers and the community. Imagine the possibilities if every child had the opportunity to reach his or her full potential.
What People Are Saying
"Jon to me is a mentor, but he is more like a brother to me than anything else. I know I can go to him with any problems I have or anything with school that I need help with. Hanging out with Jon has given me the opportunity to try new things, learn new things, but most importantly to have fun."
— Little Brother Tyler
"As a Big Sister, the word ‘extraordinary’ isn't powerful enough to describe the bond we share. Our friendship is a blessing. We have developed a foundation that is needed for all friendships to grow & build beautiful memories... mutual trust & respect, unconditional support & caring. "
