Building a Child's future through the friendship and guidance of mentoring.
About Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley
We believe every child should have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential, both as individuals and citizens –that by doing so, they will not only do well, they will also do good.
Serving as role models, our mentors teach by example the importance of giving and giving back, of staying in school, and of having respect for family, peers and community. Each time we pair a child with a mentor or introduce a group of students to an in-school program, we start something incredible – a life-changing relationship built on friendship, trust and empowerment.
Witnessing the transformation of a child into a confident, concerned and motivated young person is a remarkable thing. Ushering them into adulthood, seeing them grow into a successful, responsible member of their community and society at large is even more satisfying.
We are Big Brothers Big Sisters and we believe in the value and values of mentoring.
