Be a Hero!
Who is a Hero? A Hero is a monthly giver who supports the mentorship programs of Big Brothers Big Sisters of South-West Durham.
Why Should I become a Hero?
One child in every six is at risk of being overlooked, of falling behind, of never making something of him or herself. At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential.
In order to achieve this, we create both one-to-one and group mentoring matches that take place in our communities and in our schools. We currently reach over 1200 “at risk” children in Ajax-Pickering, Oshawa, and Whitby, with the support of 140 volunteer mentors.
You can help change a child’s life. Monthly giving provides ongoing, consistent support to the agency, which allows us to keep doing what we do best: empower local children to achieve their full potential. Monthly giving also delivers predictable income to the agency, which in turn allows us to better plan and implement our mentoring programs, ultimately allowing us to serve more children in professionally supported one to one mentoring friendships that change their lives for the better… forever.
