Our Association raises 100% of its necessary funding through events and donations and all revenue stays specifically in Orillia to support the existing local Big Brother Big Sister programs. Today, we support over 150 families annually in a variety of mentoring programs which include Big & Little matches, couple matches, group matches, cross-gender matches, In-School Mentoring, teen mentoring and ‘Go Girls’. We also offer regular group activities for our entire membership which facilitate the physical, social, intellectual and emotional needs of everyone in our program.
